My ability to motivate students and share a love of learning fosters a successful classroom environment. ...I welcome becoming part of the village that raises the child.
My name is Lesley Elise Castillo and I have been teaching for 21 years, since graduating from Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia. I am the mother of 3 boys and I was raised in a family of educators. Both my grandmothers, my mother, and my sister are all teachers. My hobbies include swimming, reading, riding my bike, and watching my boys play basketball.
This year I am Horizon Vice Principal. My passion is teaching and inspiring children to love learning. I invite and encourage families to be a part of the learning experience in our class and with the entire Horizon family! I believe that “a good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning.” This quote motivates me daily. I strive to make our class a fun place to be, to inspire students and share my love of learning. I look forward to making Stanard One an axciting learning adventure!
