About Casa Castillo
Santiago and Jenny Castillo are educators and parents of three little ones who all attend Casa Castillo; Santi is 4, Bella 2, and Alex was just born in June of 2016. We opened Casa Castillo with the goal to provide our own children and yours with the highest level of care and education possible. At Casa Castillo we are dedicated to providing your family with the best that our family has to offer. We are a bilingual, multi-cultural family and we are passionate about passing our language and traditions on to our children. We practice home language (Spanish) / community language (English) in our home.
Jenny is the academic director of the school. She lived in Puerto Rico for several years as a child where she developed the foundation for her Spanish language and love of all things multicultural. She has a background in Public School education where she taught Elementary Spanish for 6 years at Apple Glen Elementary in Bentonville and is beginning her 3rd year teaching 6th/7th grade orchestra for the Bentonville Public School district. She has a degree in Early Childhood Education and is an Arkansas certified teacher for general education grades Pre-K through 4th grade and music for grades K-12. Jenny also runs the Suzuki music program of Casa Castillo.
Santiago is the administrative director and has a background in retail and literature, working many years for Librerias Gandhi in Guadalajara, Jalisco and Merida, Yucatan in Mexico and then joining the Walmart giant when moving to Northwest Arkansas. He primarily manages the business side of the school, although he is quick to step in the classroom and help out whenever teachers need backup or when little ones need some extra TLC. Mr. Castillo is everyone’s favorite.
