Mrs. Anja Costello

My name is Anja Costello and I teach fourth grade at Graham A. Barden. I was born and raised in south eastern Ohio. If you have heard of Kings Island, you were a hop, skip, and a jump from my tiny hometown of approximately 3000 people. I originally went to school at Miami University (Oxford, Ohio) where I began studying anthropology. From there I moved to Hawaii and that began my hopping about and living in some wonderful places all over the country. 

My students often refer to me as Ms. Unicorn because they know it is my nickname and my hair changes colors quite often. When I am not in the classroom (virtually or physically), I love doing art. I love to travel and take photos along the way. If I am can stay awake after a long day at school, I love to curl up with a good book.
