Patricia Salo, Elementary and Middle School Educator at Green Bay Public School District, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in teaching and education.
Ms. Salo knew as early on as her own childhood that she wanted to become a teacher. Enacting on this early desire, she set out in her career to change the lives of the students she would go on to teach. All that she hoped to get out of this experience was to be remembered as a person who not only has shown strengths, but also faults, as well as take risks. Throughout it all, Ms. Salo hopes to be remembered as someone who has always been grateful. This gratitude is not in short supply as she has seen the effects of her teachings have had on students throughout the years. The highlight of her career thus far has been running into former students who she did not know if she connected with in the real world. These former students remember her, thank her for believing in them, and tell them about their own achievements they have gone on to do.
Ms. Salo set out to become a teacher by first earning a Bachelor of Arts in history from St. Norbert College in 1975. She continued at the institution to receive an EdB in elementary education and later at Viterbo University, where she received an MEd in 1981. In 2014, she furthered her education with IB Training. She began teaching at S.S. Peter and Paul School in 1975, and remained there until 1980. In 1976, she was made the social studies department chair of Franklin Middle School, a role she served in until 2016. Furthermore, she was a Co-Operating teacher with student teachers from 1980 to 2016. From 1985 to 2016, Ms. Salo was a teacher at Franklin Middle School, an IB World School in the Green Bay Public School District.
In recognition of Ms. Salo’s contributions, she has received the Golden Apple Award from the Green Bay Area Partners in Education. She has also trained individuals and various members of society at the International Baccalaureate World’s Middle Years Program. She is also trained in social studies with AVID. Since 2015, Ms. Salo has been involved with the Green Bay Botanical Garden, attesting to her love of gardening. She has also been involved with the National Education Association, the Green Bay Education Association, the Wisconsin Education Association, and the Executive Board of the GBEA-R. Ms. Salo has been published in Who’s Who of American Women.
