Anyone catch the 2018 Grammy Awards?
The Recording Academy’s 60th annual award presentation, held this year at New York’s very own Madison Square Garden, had its share of celebrities, laughs, gaffes, cutting edge fashion, over-the-top musical performances, snubs, and Blue Ivy.
The Music Educator Award recognizes current educators (kindergarten through college) who have made a significant and lasting contribution to music education while demonstrating a commitment to maintaining music education in their schools.
Ms. Salguero, who has taught music at P.S. 48 since 2010, was selected over other educators from states like California, Colorado, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. Thanks to The Recording Academy and the GRAMMY Museum, she and P.S. 48 will both receive $10,000 each along with the Grammy award.
“This is one of the most epic moments of my life,” said Salguero after receiving her award during the “GRAMMY In The Schools Live!” event on January 25. “My dream was to teach in a city that loved and cherished music. To be honored in New York City as a New York teacher, this has been one of the most amazing experiences in my life.”
CBS News recently featured Ms. Salguero’s inspirational, unconventional, and attention-grabbing work at P.S. 48, which her students credit for their success and interest in school.
Congratulations to Ms. Salguero and all of her proud colleagues and students at P.S. 48 in the Bronx!
