Ms. Casillas

I have been a teacher for almost 31 years. I have taught 4th grade, 5th grade, K-5 ESL, and have been a math coach and a district ESL coordinator. This is my very first year as a librarian and computer lab teacher. I am excited to help all of our Jackson students learn to love reading and to find information on anything they want to know. My hope is that they will all feel confident and comfortable while working on the computer or in the library! 
Besides my two grown-up children, my family includes three dogs Chulo (a shitzu mix), Steve (a chihuahua mix), and Frankie (just a scruffy, fuzzy mutt). I sometimes call them my 4-legged kids. My students love to hear stories about their crazy antics. 
In my spare time, I like to read, do paper crafts, spend time with my granddaughters, and work on my yard. 
Have a great year! I know I will because Jackson students are awesome. :)
