Myra Salinas

All Sites - Director of Student Support Services

I was born in Manila, Philippines. I immigrated to the United States when I was 11 years old. I am married, and I have three children, all attending Larchmont Charter School. I love playing the piano, and I sing in my church choir. My favorite subject is Math, and I'm also an avid reader. Although I'm no longer as active as I'd like to, I did play tennis for my high school. I wish I could play tennis more than once a year. I also love swimming, and everyone knows that my dream is to have my husband build me a pool in my backyard.
