Teddy Salazar

I am an assistant teacher in the Lavender classroom. In addition to teaching, I am a multidisciplinary artist and hope to bring my passion for community-engaged art into the classroom and the LFP community as much as possible. I believe in art as a tool for engagement and healing. By encouraging creative expression and outdoor play in children at a young age, we are preparing them to be more connected to themselves, each other and the world around us. Although it’s not always easy in the world we live in, I believe in educating children with radical kindness and will do my best to encourage children to be empathetic towards all people.
