6th Grade Teacher
Hello! My name is Amber Castro. This will be my seventh year teaching at Grant Ranch. I taught fifth grade for many years. This is my first year teaching 6th grade. I am incredibly excited to be your child’s Math and Social Studies teacher!
I grew up in Southwest Denver where I attended DPS schools from ECE-12th grade. I graduated from John F. Kennedy High School and then attended the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, where I majored in Elementary Education. I then went on to substitute teach in DPS for two years. Teaching is my life-long passion. I enjoy reading and build read aloud time into every day as to help grow my student’s love for books. I also enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, and being active in Colorado by hiking, running, biking, and snowboarding.
