I am Mrs. Castillo (formerly Miller) of Weimar, Tx. My family and I live in Del Valle, outside of Austin, where I have been teaching for the last 5 years (or 10 if you count my experience teaching Head Start). Most recently I was named the Del Valle ISD District Teacher of the Year. It was a huge honor and I feel very blessed to be able to bring my talents back closer to home. I strongly believe in Catholic education as I am the product of such. Having graduated from St. Michael's in Weimar and Sacred Heart in Hallettsville, my husband and I are grateful to now have the opportunity to bring our daughter up with the same amazing education and faith. But enough about me.
