About Me

Sra. Castaneda recently moved to Atlanta from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, where she was born and raised.  In 1986 she moved to Tampa, Florida with her family.  There, she worked with the Federal Tittle 1 program in private schools where she tutored students in English and Math.  At Tampa Catholic High School, she taught Spanish 2.3,4 and Spanish Advance Placement. Eventually, the family moved back to Puerto Rico where she was a Special Education teacher and a 3rd grade teacher at Cupeyville School for eleven years. She also taught 7th grade and 8th grade Spanish, and Spanish as a Second Language at Commonwealth-Parkville School for three years.

She has a granddaughter and a grandson, and two sons. Her youngest son is an instructor like her.

She graduated from the University of South Florida with a bachelor’s degree in Spanish.  She attended the InterAmerican University of Puerto Rico where she earned a Special Education Certification.  She has been teaching for more than 20 years. In her free time, she enjoys sewing and traveling with her family and friends. Although she has been a Spanish teacher for most of her career, she taught Science, Math, and English at the 3rd grade level. According to Sra. Castaneda, her profession is her passion.
