Mrs. Maria Castaneda

Hello Huskies! Here's some information about me:  I grew up in Corpus Christi. I have been married for 20 wonderful years. I have two children. Austin is 18 and Kylie is 15. We also have two precious dogs named Juliet and Pepper. This is my 23rd year teaching.  I have also taught 5th and 1st grade. I earned my BA from UTSA and my Master’s degree from Texas A & M- Corpus Christi.  I enjoy doing fun activities with my kids (roller skating, reading, bowling, going to the movies, and swimming).  I love traveling and enjoy going out to eat.  This summer we did lots of hiking at the state parks.
