Deb Truelock, Director

Deb and her family moved to Salmon in January 2015 from Northern California. They were drawn to the area by the variety of outdoor adventures and small town environment in which to raise their children. Since moving to Salmon Deb has been working in the school district and alongside her husband at their local business. Deb’s passion for education started at a young age and in the last 15 years her education experience ranged from teaching preschool to teaching adult learners, both in person and online. Deb has her Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development and is currently going through an online credentialing program to earn her teaching credential with an endorsement in special education. Living in a small rural community, Deb understands the importance of online learning and bringing educational opportunities to Salmon to enrich the lives of its community.
