Amber Castro

5th- Literacy


5th Grade

Hello! My name is Amber Castro. This will be my tenth year teaching in DPS. I am incredibly excited to be your child’s fifth grade teacher!

I grew up in Southwest Denver, where I attended DPS schools from ECE through 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 for DPS for two years. Teaching is my life-long passion. I enjoy reading and build read aloud time into every day 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, camping, and snowboarding.
