BA in Teaching with English Language Arts focus at CSUSB
Hello! My name is Ms. Castro and I am excited to be teaching 5th grade at Maxwell Elementary. I have been teaching at Maxwell Academy since 2014.
Teaching has always been my passion. I worked for several after school programs and did tutoring while I went to California State University San Bernardino and earned a teaching degree with a focus in English Language Arts. I love to read and write and truly enjoy watching students become readers and writers as well. I also love listening to music, travelling, and camping with my family.
5th grade is an exciting year as we will be working with fractions and decimals in math. We also focus on writing constructed responses to reading. We will also be exploring six units of inquiry. Topics we will cover include the American Revolution, properties of matter, conservation of energy in an ecosystem, and many more! I look forward to an exciting and successful year.
These are a few of my favorite things:
Drink: Dr. Pepper
Hobbies: Off-roading & Camping
