Congratulations to Counselor Mrs. Salazar who was selected as Delano High School's Tiger Teacher of the Month.
Mrs. Salazar has been in the Delano High School district for 20 years. Salazar taught spanish for 15 years before becoming a counselor at DHS. "As a teacher it wasn't only a matter of teaching students but also educating them, as a counselor it's been guiding students in class selections, graduation and college requirements, and future goals," said Salazar.
Mrs. Salazar is starting her 6th year at DHS and has some good advise to seniors. "Choose a career that makes you happy. College is not for everyone but as long as they work hard to attain their goals, become good citizens and are happy, they should be proud of themselves. Remember you here not only for your own benefit but to serve others as well. I love my senior students," said Salazar.
One of her favorite quotes is from Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.:
Mrs. Salazar wanted to say one more piece of advise to her seniors, "#Keep calm and graduate."
Senior Mariano Balbuena was selected Tiger Student of the Month.
