Welcome page

   I would like to welcome my future students and their parents to what I know will be an awesome school year at Ruben Hinojosa Elementary.  My excitement and enthusiasm builds the closer we come to the first day of school.  I can't wait to meet all my little scholars and start a wonderful adventure together.
   A little about myself....I've been married for 22 years to a great man and we're blessed with five incredible children, and two beautiful granddaughters. We have a loyal dog named Sky and sleepy cat named Misha.  They are both 5 years old and no, they're not twins.

   As a family, we enjoy going 
to the dog park, Friday night football games, and watching football on T.V. - Go Cowboys! This summer we took a memorable trip to Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida!  It truly was an amazing experience!
   Parents, at Ruben Hinojosa Elementary our philosophy is "Everyone Matters, Everyone Counts."  We know how important your children are and don't take their education lightly.  I am looking forward to having them in my classroom and becoming their teacher.  Please know that I will work hard to build them up to their fullest potential.
   I hope to meet all my little scholars during Meet the Teacher night on August 24th.  Your child is welcomed to bring their school supplies that day.
Mrs. Castillo
