Hey everyone! My name is Farrah Salem and I have been enrolled at UWF for my Master's in Ed. for a year now! I am from Miami, FL and have had the pleasure of teaching here for two years. I started my first year as a Teach For America Corps member teaching Chemistry and Physical Science. Toward the end of my first year teaching I was offered a Digital Media & Technology position at the school that I went to high school with. At my home school I have had the opportunity to work my way up as a department head AND head of the Digital Media & Entrepreneurship magnet programs.
I was born to a Cuban mother and Pakistani father. I was born and raised in Miami, but plan to move to Austin, Texas in the next few months. My father's health issues have prevented me from doing it even sooner! I hope to travel the entire world one day and I love adventure. Some of my other hobbies include Yelp, thrifting, and Reddit.
I want to be a school leader because I thrive on organization and culture-building. I truly believe that kindness is key, and enjoy making others happy. I would love to create a strong school culture that encourages faculty engagement and student learning.
Five words that someone close to me would use to describe me are: spontaneous, optimistic, scattered, high-energy, and kind.
Hope to hear from you all!
