I DO and I understand"
An unsolicited compliment is one given to an individual or group without it being asked for. In Room 211 we consider this type of compliment to be something worth striving for on a daily basis.
Goal for this year: 42 (set by the students):
Number of unsolicited compliments to date: 26

If your child is leaving Lincoln School for lunch, please provide a dated and signed note to Mr. Casten!
I have been at Lincoln teaching 4th Grade for 19 years now! It's a fantastic school surrounded by an equally fantastic community!
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. Working with so many children for so many years has brought joy and meaning to my life. As excited as I was on my very first day, the feeling never faded as I'm very excited to start the 2019-20 school year.
I am married to a former Elmhurst teacher and we have three children (Ava 12, Henry 10, and Ella 9), two dogs, and a bunny in the house. Needless to say, there's never a dull moment at the Casten House!
I became a teacher to try to make a difference for as many kids as I can. It certainly takes a village to raise a child and I know, firsthand, that Elmhurst is such a village, and I have been fortunate enough to be a part of that village for so many years.
