The students highlighted above represent only 1 percent of the Salem High School graduating class of 2013. (I am limited in space and could not share all of their stories.) Our goal as educators is to engage and inspire our students, to prepare them for their future, and to help them reach their potential. However, at the same time we are teaching our students, we often find ourselves learning from them. The students are the reason that we look forward to coming to work every day. The students motivate us to work as hard as we can to give them the education and experiences they deserve. The students are the inspiration at Salem High School. Thank you and best of luck to the Class of 2013.
