Salinda encourages innovative and critical thinking skills as an art teacher at Fusion Academy. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Art Education (grades k-12) at Queens College where she graduated with honors and was awarded the “Excellence in Art Education Award.”
She applied her experience and training in Robert Goddard High School, in which she fostered a creative and positive learning environment based on student needs, diversity, art history, and culture.
In her free time Salinda enjoys spending time with family, sewing, going to parks and visiting museums. One of her short term goals is to start going for family bike rides and roller skate more often. She has a great love for animals but she cannot enjoy dogs or cats because she is allergic to their hair. This unfortunately forces her to enjoy them from afar.
