After working for our rivals, Starr’s Mill welcomes math teacher Nicholas Castagna back to his alma mater. 

It is great just to be back wearing the blue and representing the Panthers again.” Castagna said. “It really feels like coming back home.” 

Castagna graduated from Starr’s Mill in 2007, and loves the atmosphere here, even though he says it was hard to leave all the friendships he made during his time at Whitewater. 

“I look forward to forming new [relationships] here at Starr’s Mill,” Castagna said.

In his free time, Castagna enjoys hanging out with his wife and daughter, mowing his lawn, and reading a good book. 

A fun fact about Castagna is that he sometimes plays soccer with Principal Allen Leonard.
