The Witch City

Hi. Hello. Greetings from Salem.

Wow. I can’t believe that I am really here in Salem, Massachusetts doing an internship with the National Park Service. I almost did not make it to Salem. A few days before I got my internship offer in the beginning of May I broke my left elbow.

El Punto

Hello everyone. The first two weeks of my internship have just flown by. It’s been so fun getting to know all the rangers, the two national historic parks where I work, and the history of the area.

Making Connections

These past couple of weeks have been jam packed with education programs. One day we had over 200 middle school students come to Salem Maritime for an education program.  We had our weekly preschool program yesterday in Saugus Iron Works where 65 people showed up.

A Week of Traveling

I cannot believe I only have two more weeks here in Salem. The summer is going by way too fast. It’s been a lot of work but I’ve been having a lot of fun too.

Arianna Montaño

Arianna was born and raised in sunny San Diego, California. Growing up 20 minutes away from the Mexican border meant the Mexican culture very much present throughout her life. She started attending preschool at the age of three in Tijuana, Baja California before transferring to an elementary school in San Diego where English became her second language. She recently graduated from the University of California, San Diego where she earned a B.A. in Sociology and a minor in Language Studies with a specialization in Spanish.  The importance of education was something that influenced her upbringing and ultimately her career goal. From a very young age her dad would take her and her family to visit National Parks around the country. Arianna has visited Yosemite, Bryce Canyon, the Everglades, and her favorite - Yellowstone. She combined her passion and skills to help Salem Maritime National Historic Site develop a bilingual preschool program for the NPS.
