Rafael Salinas

Hello Everyone, I am Mr. Salinas and I will be teaching World Geography and African-American Studies for the 2021-2022 school year here at Madison. I am very excited about beginning this school year and look forward to meeting all of you in-person. This will be my 4th year teaching here at Madison High School and my 10th year teaching overall.

A little about me, I was born in San Diego, CA., grew up in Oceanside, CA. and have lived here in San Antonio since 1982. I have two grandchildren that I love spending every minute with and I enjoy playing video games, watching PBS, and listening to music.
