Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Alicia Castro. This is my third year teaching at WVCS. I live in Hamburg with my fiancé and our 3 ½ month old son, Hudson. My fiancé and I are getting married October 20th, and my name will be changing to Mrs. Dix!
I graduated from Buffalo State College with my Bachelor’s Degree in 2011. In 2012, I went to graduate school at St. Bonaventure University where I received my Master’s Degree in Differentiated Instruction. Prior to working at WVCS, I taught first grade in North Carolina for two years, and was a long-term substitute at Springville-GI.
I absolutely love teaching. It is a part of who I am as a person. One of my favorite things about teaching is witnessing the 'ah-ha' moments that occur throughout the year. I enjoy getting to know my students, and incorporating their interests into the classroom.
My students are only in my classroom for a short period of time, but they stay in my heart forever.
Here are some of my favorite things:
