2nd Grade – Mr. Daniel Castillo

“This is large work that I have called you into, but don’t be overwhelmed by it. 

It’s best to start small.  You won’t lose out on a thing.”

Matthew 10: 41-42

Dear Middle School Families,

It is a true blessing to be here at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School where we educate the whole child.  I am Mr. Castillo and this is my ninth year of teaching elementary and middle school.  I taught in both public and private schools respectively. I was blessed to teach Kindergarten-6th grade and served as a Dean of Discipline and Assistant Principal respectively.  In 2013, I was blessed and acknowledged with an award presented by the California State Senate in Teaching.  I look forward to bringing my experience, my passion, my enthusiasm about science and my love of Christ to my students.

I hold the following college credentials:

  1. Associate of Arts

Antelope Valley College

Letters, Arts and Sciences with a Concentration in Child Development

  1. Bachelor of Arts

California State University, Northridge

Liberal Studies with a Concentration in Multicultural Education

  1. Master of Arts

Loyola Marymount University

Elementary Education with a Concentration on K-8 Credential

In addition to teaching here at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School, I am an Adjunct Professor at Southern Indian Polytechnic Institute “SIPI” where I teach Language, Literacy and Reading to undergraduate students pursuing their degree in Education.

I realize that teaching your child is a privilege, as well as a tremendous responsibility.  I will do my best this year to ensure that each student has a motivating and safe learning experience in my classroom.  However, I cannot do this alone, I need your help!  You and I need to be partners in the learning process.

If you have any comments, questions or concerns, please send me a note using my email that was provided in my syllabus or Pass-a-Note on Sycamore.

Finally, I look forward to this rewarding year being your child’s second grade teacher.  Be assured of my prayers for you and yours.
