Perla Castaneda

Hello My name is Perla Isabel Castaneda. Welcome to my ELL webpage!

About Me: 
I was born in Hood River Oregon. My family moved to Northwest Iowa when I was 8 years old, and have been living in Rock Valley, IA since then. I am married to Eduardo Castaneda who works in Rock Valley at TCS. We have three beautiful children together, our son Xavier, and our daughters Veronica, and Camila. We enjoy spending time as a family and taking family trips to build memories with our children. 
I immensely enjoy working at Boyden-Hull Elementary, and getting to be part of my  ELL students' lives!  I myself was an ELL student my first years in grade school, therefore I can connect with my students in that way. I know how it feels to be completely lost, and sometimes scared in a classroom. My goal is to help all my students succeed and become proficient in English, and hopefully cut back on those scary feelings! 

Educational Background: 

I Graduated  from Rock Valley High School ,and  graduated from Northwestern College with  an Elementary Education degree. 

Teaching Experience: 

I worked  as a paraprofessional for three years in Preschool, prior to my arrival at Boyden-Hull Elementary. 

Current teaching assignment:
