Welcome to Fourth Grade!
Our classroom is built on empowerment, independence, curiosity, and respect. It is my goal to help you to achieve big things and to make huge strides in your learning. In our class, we aren't afraid to step a little out of our comfort zone because we know that's when we start to really grow. In 303 we always strive to be a better friend, peer, and student. Everyone brings their own amazing talents and skills that help to make our class an incredible team.
Together, we will move mountains!
Our Year Together
Fourth grade is a year of monumental growth. You will be learning so much more about yourself and will truly bloom this year in our classroom. You have the opportunity as a fourth grader to be a role model to others and a friend to all (especially our first grade pen pals from Livermore and our second grade buddies from Mrs. Clougher's class!).
My expectations for you aren't too complicated- be kind to everyone, be brave, be a leader, be honest and fair to yourself and others, and always try your best.
-Meet Mrs. Castillo-
Hi there! I'm Mrs. Castillo, and I couldn't be more thrilled to be your fourth grade teacher this year! This year will be filled with new learning, discoveries, tons of fun, creativity, and lots of adventure. I attended college at Sonoma State University and completed both my credential and Masters in Teaching at Saint Mary's College. This will be my sixth year teaching fourth grade at Montair and I look forward to another incredible year!
What I love most about Montair is the community of families and teachers. I love being a roadrunner and I am proud to teach at this school.
