STAFF FEATURE FRIDAY | We want to be able to shine a light on every single staff member in our District. They are the backbone of everything we do and we believe they should all be recognized! Starting today, we will start featuring individual staff members and this Friday, we are shining the light on Todd Salisbury!
Todd is the High School Math teacher and has been teaching in Hillsboro since 1999. This was his first job out of college (UW - Eau-Claire) and he knew from day one, that this is where he wanted to raise his family. Him and his wife, Wendy, fell in love with Hillsboro's small-town atmosphere. They have four wonderful children, Amy (attending UWEC), Nicci (High Schooler), Megan (High Schooler) and Brett (Elementary School).
He loves spending as much time outdoors as possible. He also enjoys weight lifting after getting hooked on it in high school. He is a HUGE sports fan and loves all Wisconsin sporting teams - especially the Green Bay Packers (this may be the reason why his son's name is Brett!). He used to coach football and powerlifting and is currently coaching junior high track.
A fun fact about Todd: He is not a very emotional guy and has a strong dislike of the Chicago Bears, but every time he watches the "30 for 30" ESPN special on the 1985 Chicago Bears, he can't help but get emotional!
When asked why he enjoys teaching at Hillsboro, this is what he said:
"I enjoy teaching at Hillsboro because you get to know every student on a personal level due to our smaller size. We also have a rich tradition of excellent academics and success in athletics along with other extracurriculars. All of this makes me proud to be teaching at Hillsboro my entire career."
Thank you for being apart of our Tiger Team Todd!#HSDGoTigers
