Julie Costello

Welcome to first grade. This is my eleventh year teaching at St. Thomas More School. I have been teaching for over 20 years in mostly Catholic schools around the country. This will be a very challenging and exciting year. We will learn about the solar system, human body, Native Americans and saints among other units. We still teach cursive writing and, starting in third grade, students will receive letter grades. I look forward to getting to know your children and watching their growth during this year.
