• Meet Mrs. Casillas 


    I am so excited to be your new 2nd grade teacher!!  It is going to be a great year full of new friends, new adventures, and new discoveries.  While this will be my first year as an Esperanza Shark, it is my 11th year in the classroom, having previously taught in the Tempe School District.  My greatest pleasures include: spending quality time with my husband of eight years, and my five year old daughter; reading a variety of genres; all things outdoors; and, of course, shaping little minds.  With that, let's make this an incredible school year!!


    In this classroom...

    You are cared about.  I value your ideas, thoughts, and actions. You have unique talents and strenghts.  I cannot wait for you to share them with your classmates.  You are about to bring forth so many new contributions, and that is inspiring beyond words!

    I greatly value any and all feedback parents have to share.  Please feel free to contact me throughout the year with any questions or concerns.  It is my sincere wish to cultivate an effective partnership so that together we can support your child this upcoming year.
