Gloria G. Salinas, a retired Middle School Teacher at the Slaton Independent School District, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of education.
Recognized for more than three and a half decades of invaluable contributions to her chosen field, Ms. Salinas has garnered a laudable reputation as a substitute teacher for sixth to ninth grade students at the Slaton Independent School District in Slaton, Texas, since 2012. Previously, she found success as a teacher at MacKenzie Middle School in Lubbock, Texas, between 1982 and 2011, during which time she taught students in the special education program, as well as in Spanish language studies. Likewise, Ms. Salinas distinguished herself as a desk clerk and monitor on behalf of the Salvation Army from 2012 until 2019.
In accounting for her success, Ms. Salinas credits her propensity for believing in herself, despite the obstacles that have long stood in her path. Well regarded for her indelible contributions to the field, she was bestowed with the Hispana of the Year Award from the Hispanic Women’s Association in 2008. Likewise, Ms. Salinas was bestowed with the Teacher of the Month Award in 2004 and was recognized as the Best Latin Teacher by the City of Lubbock in 2001.
Ms. Salinas initially became involved in her profession due to her struggles in learning English as a child. During this time, she found herself placed in special education classes due to the language barrier, and felt great empathy for her students after entering her own career path. Ms. Salinas’ exemplary performance in the field was born of her academic journey, which began at Texas Tech University, from which she attained a Bachelor of Science in education in 1982. Likewise, she is supported by an associate’s degree in language training.
