Mrs. Anne Castro, a certified teacher, is one of our dedicated Special Education paraprofessionals. She has been with Cobb County for 12 years; this being her 3rd year at Mabry. She lived in California most of her life. During those years in beautiful Southern California, she taught Special Education (20 years) including Orthopedically Handicapped, Autism, and Deaf/Blind.
She loves traveling, gardening, tennis, volleyball, and reading. In California, she played competitive tennis for years and won many tournaments. One of her faviorite wins was the time the celebration was on the Queen Mary in Long Beach Harbor. Her picture was even in the paper the next morning!!
She has been married for 37 years to her high school sweetheart, and has 3 grown children. The true pride and joy of her life are her 5 grandchildren, Tyler, Morgan Anne, Madison, Peyton, and Hannah Grace (1 month). Keeping up with them keeps her young!!
Mrs. Castro feels that working in Special Education is a privilege, and she states that she is blessed to be able to do this at a great school like Mabry, with such a dedicated staff. She says that, "Meeting the challenges of a Special Education student makes me a better person."
