Jerry Salazar, Physical Education
Hi! My name is Jerry Salazar and I am so excited to be joining the team here at Heritage Heights Academy! This will be my 7th year teaching Physical Education. I’ve taught a variety of grade levels in those years, from Early Childhood to 8th grade. I started out at an IB Magnet School in Pueblo CO, teaching 4th through 8th grade. I then made a big life change and moved to Sacramento, CA where I taught 7th and 8th grade. Missing the Colorado Mountains and my family, I returned and taught Early Childhood to 5th grade in DPS. Throughout my time teaching, I have also coached football and baseball at the high school level. I truly enjoy working with students and helping them realize their potential as athletes.
As mentioned, I am born and raised in Colorado. I have a passion for being outdoors; hiking, biking, camping, playing catch in the park, anything where I’m outside. When the weather keeps me inside, I’m probably watching movies or brushing up on my chess game. I look forward to this new adventure at HHA!
