Erin Saladino

Subject Matter Expert

Well, hello! I’m Erin Saladino, a Subject Matter Expert. I discovered AOEU through my support of K-12 art educators, growing their practices with FLEX Curriculum. I am incredibly honored to be a contributing team member of AOEU, supporting our mission to connect our ever-growing art education products and solutions with art educators in all stages of their teaching and learning journey.

My journey (so far) in art education includes 17 years of elementary art room adventures and district-wide support of K-12 art educators and their programs as a district art education supervisor. From curriculum and professional development design to advocacy efforts and event management, having both classroom and district-level experience has provided the opportunity to appreciate the nuances of both the child and adult learner. I am a firm believer in lifelong learning and consider myself to be a collector of knowledge and experiences. There’s always something new around the corner.

Fun facts: Aside from visual art, I have theatre and classical violin experience under my belt. The arts are such a crucial factor in academic and emotional growth! But my biggest accomplishments are my two daughters and a pretty steady appreciation for trying new things. Projects are my passion. I’m excited to share my passions through AOEU.
