• Hello Everyone! My name is Samantha DiCostanzo and I am a third grade teacher at Rankin Elementary. I recently moved from New York State where I received my original teaching license and Masters in education. I received both, my bachelors and masters, from St. Joseph's College on Long Island, New York. I taught Pre-K and Special Education in different towns on Long Island. I am a very avid reader and love to travel, both of which are experiences I like to share with my students when I provide real life examples for them.

    I am very excited to be teaching third grade this year and am looking forward to a wonderful 2018-2019 school year! I am a very interactive teacher and love to get the children moving throughout the day in order to keep them engaged and active! This will be a year full of exploration for our third graders and I am here to guide them in school, as well as life skills.
