Meet Amy Castillo

Current title/school? Fifth-grade ELAR teacher at Southwest Elementary

What inspires you to work in Belton ISD? I have always loved the family community you get from Belton ISD. Everyone is so helpful, and we truly have each other's best interests in mind. We are family. 

Tell us a fun fact about yourself. I am deathly afraid of heights, but I still love to ride all of the roller coasters at amusement parks. Before getting into teaching, I thought about majoring in nursing.

What was a pivotal moment in your career? To be quite honest, I have had several moments in my career where I truly knew I was meant to be teaching. The most rewarding and meaningful moments are when past students come back and let you know how much you have impacted their lives in some way.

Academics? Bachelor's degree in communications/literacy from Howard Payne University.
