Mr. Castilleja, thank you for always being so positive and humorous. With your help, changes seem to be easier to implement & problems seem easier to solve. Thank you for always helping me solve any problem I've had to encounter, and for not just helping me resolve the problem but TEACHING me. I appreciate everything you do not just for me but for the school.

- Dayana Martinez Rodriguez


I am very grateful to Matt Castilleja, Elenor Gahchan, and Philip Williams for their help with the 8th Grade Gateway Engineering Field Trip to Silicon Labs. Thanks to their help, we had a safe and orderly trip to downtown Austin. You guys are awesome!

- Beth Dees

A huge thank you to Coach Perch for stepping up while I'm out. She has been an awesome co-teacher and the kiddos love her. Also thank you to Ms. Davis for filling in and anyone else who may have stepped up to keep the students on pace. You are awesome!
