Sal Tralongo is called Mr T by the students at the Transfiguration Academy in Bergenfield NJ.  But his path to his current role is anything but straight. 

He served in the US Army, got a teaching degree and taught in New York City Schools until the financial crisis forced job cuts.

He then went to work at Chase and had a successful 20+ year career before retiring in 2003.  He has come full circle when he went back to teaching and is now the school principal. 

Sal is the product of a catholic education and he will talk about his school experience along with his American Italian heritage when he is on AIR radio this week.
