Welcome to Mrs. Castillo's class webpage!

My name is Therese Castillo, and this is my thirteenth year at SMCS. I am very blessed to work at SMCS, and to have your child in my classroom. My husband, George, and I have been married for 31 years. We are high school sweethearts, and married in 1987 at Annunciation Catholic Church in downtown Houston. In 1996 we were blessed by the birth of our daughter, Justice. God blesses George and I every year with new students, as George is also a teacher in Houston ISD. Mrs. Alicia DiLorenzo is a huge blessing in my life, and in our classroom as an instructional aide. This is our sixth year working together, and I look forward to working with Mrs. DiLorenzo for many years to come here at SMCS.

I began working at SMCS in the 2005-2006 school year, the year hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated our area. By the out-pouring of concern, kindness and generosity I witnessed from SMCS families and faculty, I knew God had answered my prayers for employment, and I was in the right place. From 2000 to 2003, I worked at Light of Christ ECC in Clearwater, FL, our home parish at the time. Upon our return to Texas I was a stay at home mom, from 2003 to 2005. During this time, I volunteered many hours a week at Woodland Hills Elementary and at St. Martha’s parish.

I look forward to teaching your child in the 2018-2019 school year. We will begin with learning school, classroom and playground safety rules and procedures. In the coming weeks students will cover topics such as “All About Me”, counting apples, and fire safety. Throughout the year your child will be introduced to the alphabet, shapes, numbers one through 10, crossing the mid-line, getting along with others, working as a group, and development of gross and fine motor skills. Please look forward to your child bringing home the Snack bag, the Mary bag, and the Birthday bag. We will also do some painting, so make sure your child has two complete change-of-clothes in their cubby. Should you ever have any questions or concerns, please email me at castillot@stmarthacs.org or call #281-358-5523. My conference times are: Mondays' & Fridays' from 8:20 to 8:55 and anytime after school.

Yours In Christ,

Mrs. Castillo
