Joseph Castaldo joined the Atlantis Academy Miami L.I.F.E Program, as our instrumental Job Experience Training coach. After leaving a career on Wall Street, Joseph became a teacher for the Miami-Dade County Public School system, working with elementary and middle school students, as well as students with special needs. This experience sparked his passion for working with children and young adults with autism spectrum disorder and led Joseph to join the L.I.F.E. staff to provide job experience training to our students. Though originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., Joseph attended Florida International University in Boca Raton, Fla., where he earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology.
