Mrs. Costello/Teacher
     I have a BS degree in Child Development from the University of Pittsburgh and taught preschool for 10 years. I received my teaching license at Salem College in 2000 and began teaching the same year. In November 2008, I earned an Early Childhood Generalist Certificate from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.This is my 16th year at Union Cross and my second year teaching kindergarten, as I had taught 1st grade for the previous 14 years. I absolutely love teaching kindergarten!
