Melissa Salguero is a teacher who is turning her classroom into a musical science lab and earning herself national fanfare. In one lesson, students say she “electrocuted” a pickle. “I do things that your average teacher wouldn’t do,” Salguero says. “I make a clarinet out of a carrot — or I am showing the kids how to electrocute a pickle because it’s making a sound.” Salguero arrived at the school six years ago. At the time, P.S. 48 hadn’t had a music teacher in 30 years. Since then, she’s raised more than $150,000 for its music program.
