Welcome to Casteel! I'm very excited to be here this year. I have an awesome wife and three boys, 13, 8 and super new. I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family. I am an ASU grad and a Navy Vet, spending time onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln. I look forward to meeting with students and parents virtually and soon, in-person.
My Education and Professional Background
University of Phoenix – Business Management, Arizona State University - Masters in Education Arizona, Arizona K-8 Certified 2010, Middle Grades Science Certified, Secondary Certified, US Navy on USS Abraham Lincoln
My Educational Philosophy
I want students to enjoy coming to our classroom (virtually and in-person) because of the value they take from what we discuss and learn. My philosophy is that I take on the role of Google Maps and allow students to be the driver. While that sounds like a scary situation at first, students are challenged to become an efficient driver learning at their pace and comfort through the school year. The end result, is that everyone has gained exceptionally more than they did when they started their journey.
