About Ms. Castillo

I began teaching as a substitute since 2006 and became a credentialed teacher in 2008. I have been teaching in South LA for all but one year of my career. I teach English, English Language Development 3, and ASB Leadership. I love teaching English because there is no limit to what you can cover or talk about. I love teaching ASB Leadership because I think students have the power to make change and it's their school and they should be in charge.
I grew up in Los Angeles and love my city. Go Dodgers! Go Bruins!
I am a vegetarian and very environmentally conscious.
I love relaxing in the park and reading and taking naps. 
I love dancing. Hey, Squad!
