Mrs. Salen

My name is Candace Salen and I was born and raised in New Jersey.  I am a northerner who moved to New Bern about 14 years ago.  I am an East Carolina University graduate (Go Pirates!) and married to my high school sweetheart.  

We have two beautiful chldren, Zachary (11) and Alexis (8).  Some other members of our family are furry and lovable.  We have a cat (Skylar), an active K9 dog (Ax), 3 year old puppy (Lacie) and a few fish!   As a family, we love to be together.   Most of our time is spent outside whether it is in the neighborhood with friends, the pool, gym, ball fields, or traveling to visit family.  

This will be my 14th year teaching!  I have taught 3rd grade for 6 years and this will be my 8th year teaching 2nd.  Second grade is where my heart is and I can not wait to share my passion with your child.  They will become part of our family and will always hold a place in my heart!  I can't wait to take this journey with your family!
