Mr. Ramiro "Reggie" Salazar

Hello!  My name is Reggie Salazar and I am a US Army Veteran and served my country for 24 years.  I retired as a Lieutenant Colonel and served in a variety of leadership positions all over the world.  I have spent the last 4 years in the field of education.  My first two years here at Chapin Middle School I was the  Foreign Language instructor (Spanish) and for the last two years I have taught 7th grade Leadership (PRO TEAM) and 8th grade Financial Literacy.  I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and I hold a Masters' degree in Business Management.  It is an honor and a privilege to have your child in my class.  I am so blessed to be in a position where I can help coach, teach, and mentor them as they grow and learn at the middle school level.  I have a strong sense of passion for our youth and it is my duty to help develop the next generation of leaders and citizens.   I have served as the CMS School Improvement Council (SIC) Chairman from 2015-2017, 2019-2021, 2021-2022, to the present.  I am also a board member of the Chapin Eagle Club.  

My family and I have lived in Chapin for seven years and my wife Lauri and I have been married for 24 years.  We have two children, my daughter Sadie who is a 2021 Chapin High School graduate and is a Sophomore at Clemson University, and my son Owen, who is a Junior at Chapin High School.  My hobbies include anything outdoors, watching sports, and physical fitness.
