By Melanie Salniker, Upper Division LRC Assistant

Tell us about yourself:

I grew up in New England (Connecticut and Massachusetts), where I obtained a BA in Journalism and a JD degree. I worked as an attorney for 15 years before moving with my family to Colorado, where I began a transition to a career in education. During the 2020-2021 school year, I participated in a teacher training program and worked as a teacher resident in Denver Public Schools. I am currently enrolled in a Master's program in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Denver. 

Why do you work at Denver JDS?

Choosing where to work, community, and Jewish values were my priorities. I'm thrilled to be a part of the DJDS community, both as an educator and a parent.

Ask me about: (interesting hobbies, etc.)

Gardening, reading, and spending time with my husband and daughter outdoors.
