Ms. Yvonne Castillo

Hello and welcome to FIRST GRADE! My name is Yvonne Castillo and I am on my 21st year of education and this will be my 16th year with FBISD at Palmer Elementary!  I am so excited to start another year at Palmer Elementary. It will be an exciting and challenging year with new learning and new experiences.  We will get through it together with lots of fun and show lots of progress.

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 back to the Rio Grande Valley to visit my family with my twin daughters Jordan- a graduate of A&M University and Justine - a graduate of University of Houston.  I also travel to visit my daughter Megan and her husband in Virginia because I am now a Grandma!  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!

Here's to a great year!
