Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Ann Marie Taranto

My name is Ann-Marie Taranto and I am the new part time AIG teacher at Salem Elementary on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesday afternoons and Laurel Park Elementary, Wednesday mornings, Thursdays and Fridays.  I grew up in Arlington, Va., outside Washington, D.C. and have lived in Apex and Cary for 18 years. I am a proud graduate of Virginia Tech (go Hokies!) and received my Masters in Education and AIG Education from Campbell University. I have been teaching for 12 years and have taught students in all grades, K-5. Most recently I spent 4 years at a Project-Based Learning school, so I can't wait to get started on some amazing projects with the students at Salem. I love football, knitting, the beach, theater, and music of all kinds. My husband and I live in Apex with our dog, Hudson, and have 3 adult children in and out of our house: Caitlin, 27, Mark, 25, and Anna, 22
