Castle Hills is truly a unique school that I've had the priviledge of being a part of since 2001. Nestled within the small community of Castle Hills, we take pride in cultivating a strong "family-like" atmosphere in the way we share the same goal for our students. In addition to our strong academic expectations, we work hard in instilling a sense of leadership in every student.
I work to develop a strong sense of community withing my classroom from day one. We colaborate, communicate, share, and make each other stronger. It's my mission to make my class a safe place where students feel comfortable enough to take risks. This type of environment fosters excited learners who believe the sky is the limit.

"Being in the present means living in the moment. It means realizing that yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift-that is why we call it the present."
-A quote from What Does It Mean To Be Present? by Rana DiOrio
