Mr. John Castaldo
My name is John Castaldo and I teach Career Exploration, Computer Applications, and Personal Finance at my alma mater, Steinert High School. In addition to returning to Spartan Nation this, I have taught in our hometown for over 10 years. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD in Literacy from St. John's University. I am a huge New York Yankees and New York Giants fan, spending time with family, and cooking.
The above picture is when I visited Civitavecchia (port city of Rome) in 2016 and have with my recent cruise vacation. As teacher of both business and social studies teacher, I fully support Anthony Bourdain's stance on travel:
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, yu leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you.
I have visited 42 states and have seen 25 countries, I try to use these experiences to bring life into my lessons.
