A message from Mrs. Salazar:


Hello Hornets!

My name is Stephanie Salazar, and I am joining the fantastic team at Caldwell Elementary as an Assistant Principal.  I started my career in education in 1999 as a Kindergarten teacher. Since then, I have been a Title I Reading teacher, an Instructional Specialist, a Special Programs Coordinator, and an Educational Diagnostician.  Part of my role at CES is to focus on our Special Programs. My goal is to work alongside the staff at CES as we strive toward educational excellence for each student. I am very excited to be part of the wonderful things already happening in Caldwell ISD.

My husband Alex and I have two children (Isaac and Hannah) and two dogs (Scout and Luna).  We enjoy going to church, watching movies together, and going out to eat so mom does not have to cook.  Our family is so happy we have made Caldwell our home.   

I am very blessed to be joining the CES family!  Go Hornets!
