About Ms. Costello


I have been teaching children for 21 years and every year gets better. This is my 17th year in Marlboro. 


After graduating high school, I went to Rutgers University and received my degree in Journalism and Mass Media because I love to read and write.  After college, I earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I taught in Catholic School, Newark, and Basking Ridge before settling in Marlboro.  


I live in Barnegat, which is next to LBI. I love spending my free time on the beaches on LBI during the summer. At home I have two wonderful children. My son, Anthony, loves to play football, basketball and baseball. He is 12 years old and growing like a weed. My daughter, Bella, is an energetic little girl who loves to play soccer, sing, dance and create things. She is in third grade this year. Bella is a lot of fun to be around and always keeps me entertained.
