Melissa Salguero, Music Educator
It’s both an honor and pleasure to introduce Melissa Salguero: teacher, musician, role model, mentor and…2018 Grammy Music Educator Award winner! She joined the faculty of P.S. 48 Joseph R. Drake elementary school in New York’s South Bronx neighborhood in 2010. In the years since, Melissa has built its music program from the ground up, raising more than $160,000, including the $50,000 she received on the Ellen DeGeneres show. Melissa combines science and musical concepts by transforming her classroom into a Mad Scientist lab. You’re about to listen to one uplifting, inspiring, feel good conversation.
