Mr. Salatto joined DoDEA in 2014 as the Instructional Systems Specialist joining the Professional Development Branch of the Teaching and Learning Division. The branch provides leadership for the development and delivery for professional learning across the DoDEA school system. He was later promoted to lead the Professional Development branch.

School improvement was the primary focus of Mr. Salatto’s work in MCPS. The heart of this work was building Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) in school and central office leadership teams. This work included leading teams through a two-year institute and creating opportunities for school/team specific job embedded professional learning. Ultimately, teams produce self-sustaining learning organizations, where they identified essential results and utilized those results to drive learning.
