Betty J. Salvatore, Salvatore Educational Consulting, LLC, retired from Fayette County Schools where she served as Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent, Director of Elementary Schools and Assessment. Prior to this position Ms. Salvatore served as principal of Cranberry-Prosperity Elementary School in Raleigh County where she led a struggling school to National Title I Distinguished School recognition and received the West Virginia School of Excellence Award. Prior to being principal, she was an elementary curriculum specialist for Fayette Schools assisting teachers and implementing curriculum initiatives. Her teaching experience includes both middle school and elementary classroom settings. Additionally, she has served as adjunct faculty for the West Virginia College of Graduate Studies and Marshall University offering graduate credit ranging from classroom instruction to leadership skills.
Retiring with 35 years of experience in leadership and curriculum, Ms. Salvatore worked with the WVDE Assessment Office to provide various trainings throughout the state. Through Salvatore Educational Consulting, LLC, she contracts with county school systems to work collaboratively with individual schools to analyze data, develop curriculum focus plans and model classroom instructional strategies based on a variety of testing data and resources available at the school.
For the past 5 years, she served as a Training Coordinator for the Leadership in Rural WV Grant serving Raleigh, Fayette and McDowell County Schools. She was a member of the team that provided leadership staff development opportunities for more than 100 administrators and aspiring administrators. In addition to staff development sessions, Ms. Salvatore mentored participants in their school settings. The core of the curriculum/staff development was built around the Interstate Standards Leadership Licensure Consortium (ISLLC). Visits to the schools allowed the verification of the implementation of the standards. Two measures of success of the grant were to reduce turnover rate in administrative positions, and to prepare participants to assume leadership roles. Both measures were met with great success with more than 30 participants moving into administrative positions in the counties served.
