I was born in Long Beach, California, a long time ago, when Eisenhower was President. I moved to Crestline, which I consider my hometown, in second grade. Upon graduation from Rim of the World High School I traveled to Iowa to begin seminary. I continued seminary in Los Angeles, Mississippi, and Chicago. I met my awesome wife, Mrs. Castillo (6th-grade teacher here at M.C.) and we married. We have two grown children, one married, no grandkids yet, and it's killing me. I work with developmentally disabled children adults before becoming a teacher.
I enjoy teaching, but even more I enjoy learning. I love to joke around. I can get a little gross. I am firm and have high expectations for all students and myself but I am fair and will admit when I have failed.
I love working in the yard , doing woodwork, see movies, reading, and traveling. I drink Diet Pepsi and Diet Dr. Pepper by the gallons. (They have water, right?) I am trying to play golf but will little success. (stupid game).
