Music that Describes Gerald

Gerald Sala was nominated by his colleague Robert LaVigne.

"In my third year of teaching, I was transferred to the high school from the junior high," explained LaVigne. "Mr. Sala made me feel welcome in a building where I didn't know any of the staff very well and was teaching new curriculum. He helped me a lot during my first year and subsequent years by providing resources and helping me develop my craft. I would not be the teacher I am today without his guidance and help throughout all these years. He is truly an inspiring individual who touches the lives of all the students and staff who come into contact with him. We are so lucky to have him as a teacher in our school."
