Welcome to 4th grade at Austin Elementary!
My name is Mrs. Castello and I will be your child's social studies teacher this year. I am originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, where I was born and raised. I attended college at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, where I majored in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. In 2005, I earned my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia State University. In 2007, I became Gifted Certified. I have lived in Atlanta for 17 years. My husband T.J. and I were married in April of 2003. We live here in Dunwoody with our daughter Sofia (a 2nd grader here at Austin) and our 7-year old golden retriever named Copper. This will be my 18th year teaching, and my 6th year at Austin.
I am so excited about this school year! Together, we will make it a wonderful and educational year!
