  • Welcome to Mrs. Locastro's 5th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies class! I am so excited about this upcoming school year at Petal Upper Elementary!  

    About Me: This will be my sixth year of teaching and my fourth year in the wonderful Petal School District!  I graduated with my Bachelor's and Master's Degree from Mississippi College in Clinton, Mississippi.  Shortly after graduation, my husband Weston and I married and moved to Oxford.  I taught 2nd grade in the Oxford School District for two years.  I am originally from Laurel and have always wanted to come back to the Pine Belt.  My husband is a Civil Engineer at SDW Engineering. We love being back in the area and look forward to raising our family here. Last September, we welcomed our daughter Anne Carlisle into our family. 

    In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing golf, reading, visiting National Parks with my family, and having game nights. I am looking forward to getting to know my students and their families over the next year.
