Melissa started her teaching career teaching middle school band in South Florida and now has been teaching music at P.S.48 Joseph R. Drake Elementary School in the South Bronx since 2010.

She has built the music program from the ground up and has raised over $200,000 for her music program. Salguero was honored as the Lincoln Center Arts Teacher of the Year in 2013. In 2014, after P.S. 48 suffered a break-in, Salguero was invited to represent the school on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." She was named the Grammy Music Educator Award Recipient in 2018.

Ms. Salguero combines science and musical concepts by transforming her classroom into a Mad Scientist Lab. She plans hands-on experiments in her lessons to demonstrate how science and music are related. Her goal is to foster creativity, curiosity and a strong work ethic in her students through the power of music.

Ms. Salguero's classroom is a place where creativity, curiosity, humor, and hard work combine to create a passion for learning. She inspires her students and makes learning music fun and accessible to all.
