Mrs. Valerie Castillo
I'm so excited for another year at Windcrest Elementary. This is my 3rd year at Windcrest and my 5th year as an elementary teacher. Teaching is truly a passion of mine and I enjoy guiding students to be our future leaders. I am truly blessed to be in this profession.
My husband and I have been married for 13 years. We have three children, my son Joseph who is 11 and in the 6th grade, my daughter Vivica who is 9 in 4th grade and my daughter Viviana who is turning 3 in Janurary.
I enjoy going to the movies and spending time with my family. I love to go hiking, swimming and spending our summers at the beach.
