Mrs. Castedo

Maria Castedo

Hello, my name is Maria René Castedo. I was born and raised in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, and moved to the United States when I was seven years old. I’ve lived most of my life in Reno, Nevada, and moved to Idaho in the last year. I live in Meridian with my husband, Christian and son, Nikolai.

   My hobbies include reading, traveling, eating, and spending time with my loves ones. Some of the things my family and I like to do for fun include going on walks, shopping, and hanging out at Barnes and Nobles. One of my bucket list items include visiting all seven continents.

   Education is something I am passionate about - I want to help all my students be successful. The future of our world is in my classroom, and I want to make sure that I help them achieve all their dreams, and help them become the person they are meant to be.


“Education is not preparation of life; education is life itself.”

-John Dewey
