• Maricella Castaneda



     As a lifelong supporter of education,  I have enjoyed my journey of over 20+ years of commitment to students and school districts. I play an active role in assuring that all students have a successful foundation for a lifetime of learning. My goal is to strive to create and maintain an environment where students can grow and thrive while exploring the world around them.



    My name is Maricella Castaneda. I am 48 years old. I am from Robstown, TX. and am happily married to my husband, Manuel. We have three beautiful daughters: Miranda, Meah, and Mariah, and the blessing of a granddaughter named Maliya. I am currently the DAEP Lead Teacher at DAEP Calallen Middle School. Together with a team of amazing and creative teachers, we strive and are committed to partner with parents and the community to; challenge, nurture, and empower students to build strong character and to achieve academic excellence.
