Ms. Morgan Castros, the lead Preschool B teacher for our Venning Road center, is originally from Stamford, Connecticut. Her brother Christian, who has Asperger’s Syndrome, initially inspired her to pursue a career in teaching, because she wanted to help teach others like him.
She had studied the Reggio Emilia philosophy at Marshall University and instantly fell in love with the learning style and principles and the challenge it gives children to be creative. It was her passion for the Reggio Emilia philosophy that led her to Children’s Discovery Center.
Ms. Morgan’s favorite part about working at Children’s Discovery Center is being able to watch her students manipulate materials and create elaborate and unique projects. She finds her work to be an incredibly rewarding experience.
Additionally, Ms. Morgan loves having the opportunity to watch as each student grows and develops, and greatly enjoys being able to spend one-on-one time with them.
In her spare time, she enjoys doing calligraphy, along with different types of crafts. Ms. Morgan is also an avid New York Mets fan, and can oftentimes be found cheering on her favorite team with Shea, her beloved dog, who was named after Shea Stadium.
Her life motto is “Do what’s best for you.” She finds that she is constantly reminding herself to put herself first and do what makes her happy.
We are so happy that Ms. Morgan joined our Children’s Discovery Center team!
