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!
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.
