Ms. Castelli's Class

I began my teaching career here in Union City at Sara Gilmore in September of 2000.  I have my BA in Psychology from Rowan University and my MA in Urban Education with a Concentration in ESL from NJCU. I moved to Colin Powell Elementary when we first opened.  I love the challenges teaching fifth grade offers.  Everyday is an adventure! As our theme for this school year states "Imagine if..."!

Education is is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

I am pleased to announce we are up and running on Google Classroom! There are two classrooms, one for Language Arts and one for Social Studies.  Please log in and check your classwork and homework assignments.
