Ms. Castro is overjoyed to join the EQ5 family as an Instructional Aide! She joined Equitas Academy in 2017 as an Expanded Learning Team Leader and later obtained the role as a Recreational Aide. Ms. Castro has had the opportunity to work in the after school setting for over 6 years. Her journey began during High School when she decided to volunteer for LA’s BEST After School Program. While volunteering, Ms. Castro found so much joy in helping and guiding children towards success. Ms. Castro believes that all children should have the opportunity to receive a high-quality education and graduate from 4 year universities. Ms. Castro is excited to meet our little scholars and build long-lasting relationships with their families. During her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, trying new coffee, watching sports and eating at Buffalo Wild Wings!
