About Me

Hello! My name is Jared DeGraffe, I will be teaching Math on the 7th grade team Maple. I have taught for 4 years before coming to Salem in Auburn NH in both 7th and 8th grade Mathematics. 

In my free time I love to be outside and hike as well as play with my dog and take her on every hike that I have been on! I have many hobbies and look forwarding to hearing about all of yours as well!

About Me

My name is Jennifer McDonough and I will be teaching Social Studies and Content Literacy on team Maple this year. This is my 22nd year  teaching in Salem. I look forward to teaching and learning along-side the students. I truly enjoy the middle school years and strive to bring the same excitement and joy to the students in class.

In my free time, I enjoy going to the beach, reading, painting, and all kinds of crafts. I love spending time with friends and family. I have three lovely boys and a wonderful husband.

I look forward to a wonderful 2021-2022 school year with everyone!
