Marc Salz: Upper School History Teacher
What motivated and inspired you to teach? During my freshman year of high school, I lost my favorite history teacher to diabetes related blindness. I was determined to someday try and fill his shoes.
What makes you excited to come to school every day? The students' willingness to work hard in small groups and find the answers on their own with my guidance.
What life lesson do you want your students to learn in your classroom? I want them to learn more about an educated conscience and see that some issues are truly about right and wrong.
Tell us a fun or interesting fact about yourself! After a lifetime as a football and basketball fan, I've become such a soccer fan that I'll skip an NCAA tournament game or an NFL playoff game for an FC Dallas soccer match.
What is your favorite book and why? The Lord of the Rings trilogy, since it teaches lessons about history and about the value of comrades on our way through life's struggles.
If you could have dinner with three people, alive or not, who would they be? My kids, but they'd actually have to communicate over food.
