Mrs. Rosa Jaramillo-Salgado

I grew up in Orange County and attended all schools within the county. Also, I am hard of hearing and have attended Taft DHH program as little girl back in the day!  So I have been around at Taft DHH for a while!  I am trilingual in sign language, English, and Spanish.  I am married, have three children, and a Chihuahua named Chica.  In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, shopping, reading, spending time with family and friends.

I have a BA in Child Development from Cal State Fullerton, MA in Special Education with emphasis of Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) Education and teaching credential in DHH . I worked for 12 years as an DHH instructional aide at Taft prior to becoming a teacher. I am in awe of the wonder and excitement that the deaf and hard of hearing children possess about coming to school and wanted to work in a field that allows me to interact with them on a regular basis. My favorite activity with the children is when they start to express themselves through sign language. "The kids are fantastic! I am amazed everyday that such little people can have such big personalities!"
