Mrs. Valerie Castillo

Hello all!

I'm so excited for another year at Windcrest Elementary. This is my 5th year at Windcrest and my 8th 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 15 years.  We have three children, my son Joseph who is 13 and in the 8th grade, my daughter Vivica who is 11 in 6th grade and my daughter Viviana who is 4 years and in daycare.

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.
