Meet Mr. Salyer


Tyler SalyerOur Little Dragon Family,

I feel likeI would be amiss if I started this off any other way than to say thank you. For the past eleven years, my wife, Rachel, has taught at Collierville Elementary School. Throughout that time, our family has attended PTA meetings, almost every Fair in the Lair, pancake breakfasts, and other events where we were always welcomed and saw firsthand that Collierville Elementary isn’t just a school children attend but a place where a community becomes a family. I thank you for how good you have been to my wife and for all the phone calls, cards, and emails you have sent welcoming me. A little about me and my family: My wife, Rachel, will now be teaching at Sycamore Elementary, and we have twin girls that we adopted who will turn three the end of August. Our summer has been filled with all things Disney and potty training! My hobbies include competing in BBQ competitions and playing sports.

As I have begun to meet with students, parents, and teachers about the upcoming school year the excitement in everyone is growing! We have a year full of unique learning opportunities and events that will make the 2017-2018 school year one the best yet! Collierville Schools recognizes that people, not programs, make the biggest difference in the lives of our students and has added several positions to CES. We have added an additional instructional assistant to our staff, Mrs. Brooke McDuffy, which will allow more students to have one on one support. Mrs. Lydia McGuire is moving from fourth grade to our new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) teaching position. STEM will be added to your child’s LAMPS rotation and will give all students equal access to STEM experiences that will help them be ready for the 21st century world we live in. Finally, since we will continue our technology initiative by supplying an iPad for every 3rd, 4th, and 5th grader to use at school, we are adding a full time Instructional Technology Facilitator to partner with teachers and classes on how to appropriately integrate technology into their daily instruction. Each one of these new positions is a reminder that we are committed to preparing our students for the future. 

I am always a phone call or email away. I try to frequently post and share some of the great things going on at school on Twitter and you can follow me @MrSalyerCville. I look forward to making your family feel as welcomed as you have made mine.
