Mr. Ramiro "Reggie" Salazar

Hello!  My name is Reggie Salazar and I am a US Army Veteran.  I served my country for 24 years and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Infantry.  I  served in a variety of leadership positions all over the world finished my Army career here at Fort Jackscon, SC.  Upon retirement from the military, I entered the field of education and have been teaching for the last five years at Chapin Middle School.  My first two years here at Chapin Middle School I taught Spanish and for the last three years I have taught 7th grade Leadership (PRO TEAM) and 8th grade Financial Literacy.  This year, I am excited to be teaching Financial Literacy again and also a new class at CMS called Multimedia Basics.  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 passion for our youth and it is my duty to help develop the next generation of citizens and leaders.   I have served as the CMS School Improvement Council (SIC) Chairman from 2015-2017, 2019-2021, 2021-2022, and 2022-2023.  I am also a board member of the Chapin Eagle Club.
