El Paso, TX (KDBC) — An Andress High School teacher resigned Wednesday after learning the new EPISD board was going to terminate her contract.
Christina Castellano was a math teacher at Andress and last taught during the 2009 -2010 school year. District officials say she stopped showing up for school and abandoned her job. Board members say the decision to officially fire her was long overdue
"It was a matter of formality. She's gone form the district. No one can find her. We don't know where she is," said Dee Margo, the new EPISD board president.
School district officials were able to finally able to speak with Castellano today after friends saw media reports and tracked her down. She no longer lives in Texas. Today the district agreed to accept her resignation instead of terminating her contract.
