Details of Salles' activities in education are somewhat sketchy.  In the Jul. 1870 proceedings of the School Board appearing in the Advertiser, he was listed as President of the Board.  In Mar. 1873, he was serving as Secretary-Treasurer of the Board of Directors of Public Education, and in June of that year he was listed as Director, a position he held until Mar. 1874 when he resigned.  According to the records in the Louisiana State Department of Education, Salles served as Director of Lafayette Parish Public Schools from Apr. 20, 1875 to Mar. 31, 1877.  No other records were found at the State Department of Education of Directors in Lafayette Parish.

In 1873, when Salles was listed as Director, Auguste Monnier was President of the School Board and served until 1879.
