      Mrs. Betsy Asheim

      I have been honored to serve as the principal of Castle Hills Elementary and Northeast since 2013.  Prior to moving to San Antonio, my educational career in Sarasota, Florida began in 1995, after obtaining a M.S. Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at Nova Southeastern University.  In 2003, I obtained another M.S. Degree in Educational Leadership at the University of South Florida.  This is my eighteenth year as a school administrator, and each year comes with brand new possibilities.

      It has been my mission to create an optimal learning environment, where students thrive in leadership opportunities, caring about others, and striving to learn every day by setting goals and working to achieve them.  Our school was awarded Leader in Me Lighthouse Certification in 2016 and we continue to center our core values around the fundamentals of Covey’s 7 Habits.  Our remarkable teachers have embraced Professional Learning Communities and meet every two weeks to ensure that every student is making progress.  When you enter our school, you will feel the warm and welcoming environment from the moment you enter our bright, cheerful campus. What I love most about Castle Hills is our unique program, with a modified year-round calendar, and strong enrichment in the arts and STEM.  The Castle is truly a great place to be!!!

      In my spare time, my spouse and I enjoy visiting my two grandchildren, who live in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, where we spend most days on the beach or in the swimming pool.  They enjoy visiting the San Antonio area during Thanksgiving breaks.  My hobbies include swimming, reading, art, and exploring the sites and history that Texas has to offer.

      Mr. Steven McCarthy

      I began my educational career in the NorthEast Independent School District in 1992. I spent five years teaching at Redland Oaks Elementary and two years at Huebner Elementary before accepting an Assistant Principal position at Longs Creek. Over the past twenty-three years, I have had the honor of serving as an administrator in our incredible district. In 2020, I was honored to be asked to return to Castle Hills as the Assistant Principal.  

      My educational experiences have afforded me the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse group of people to meet the common goal of increasing student achievement. My educational philosophy is that all students can learn, given a positive learning experience, a committed and focused educational team, and an encouraging community.

      When I’m not at school, I spend as much time as I can outdoors. My hobbies include bike riding, fishing, hunting, gardening, and carpentry.
