    Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending a very special event, A Salute to Teachers, at the Balboa Theater in downtown San Diego. A Salute to Teachers recognizes outstanding educators from school districts across San Diego County. I attended because of one of our own teachers, Marilyn Tajalle, was being recognized.

    Ms. Tajalle joined Solana Santa Fe in 1995. Over the past 23 years she has worked tirelessly to support our students’ academic and personal growth. To know Ms. Tajalle is to know unbridled passion for teaching and joy for life. Her energy is infectious and her students learn to love school and themselves through her care, compassion and dedication. It is because of these attributes that Ms. Tajalle was selected Solana Beach School District Teacher of the Year for the 2017-18 school year and it was a pleasure celebrating her this past weekend.

    At the event were many members from our school community. Not only did our Superintendent, Jodee Brentlinger and our Board of Education Member, Vicki King attend, but many of our staff came to enjoy the celebration. I was very touched to see our teachers support one another. In my short time at Solana Santa Fe, I have been amazed by how much our staff truly enjoy, appreciate and care for one another. I am so fortunate to be a part of such an incredible group of people.

    Ms. Tajalle truly deserves to be honored as an outstanding teacher. She is a wonderful representative of all the incredible teachers who call Solana Santa Fe their home.
