Hello and welcome to FIRST GRADE! My name is Yvonne Castillo and I am in my 18th year of education and have been with FBISD for over 13 years. I am so excited to start another year at Palmer Elementary. It will be an exciting and challenging year with virtual online classes, but we will get through this together. I am a graduate of the University of Texas – Pan American, and am a native of the Rio Grande Valley.
When I'm not teaching I enjoy traveling to College Station to spend time with my twin daughters Jordan and Justine. I will be traveling soon to visit my married daughter Megan in Washington then to Virginia where her new home will be for the next 4 years. I also enjoy cooking, baking, going to the movies and relaxing at home.
I am firm, but nurturing, and believe that learning should be engaging, challenging, and FUN. This year reading, writing, math, and all the other subjects will be fun filled with learning through technology, hands on activities, and of course, practice! I look forward to all the progress my students will be making!
