Mrs. Nancy Elizabeth Castro
Hello, Hola, Ya'ah' tee, Ni Hao, As Salam Alaykom, Xin Chao, and Bienvenidos!
I hold a Bachelors of Science from Northern Arizona University and a Master's degree in TESOL and Linguistics from Grand Canyon University (as well as an ESL endorsement from the University of Phoenix). My education and teaching career began on the Navajo Reservation, and today the students, people, and the culture remain dear to my heart. Following, I taught in the Flagstaff Unified School District for a number of years and have served as a Reading Specialist, middle school teacher, and English language teacher. I spent a year teaching English language in South Texas (which I thoroughly enjoyed) and have taught at all grade levels; a variety of subjects at the elementary level, middle and high school English, and Physical Education and Health.
This year, at Knoles Elementary School, we are dedicated to helping your students be the best they can be and that includes being able to read, write, speak, use new vocabulary, and communicate effectively. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if there is any way in which I can assist you or your student!
Here's to a great school year, everyone!
