Class of 2018: Mrs. Castro 

Hello Class of 2018, I am excited to be your new counselor!!

 A little bit about me...I graduated from SDSU with my Bachelor in Psychology and continued my studies at University of San Diego to receive my Masters in Counseling.  I have been a School Counselor for 12 years now, working in San Diego, Vista, and Moreno Valley Unified School Districts prior to coming to Murrieta Valley High School.  Most recently, I worked at Vista Del Lago High School in Moreno Valley for the last four years.

 Now, let's talk about you!  Here are a couple questions to ask yourself to check your success and progress: 

Did I pass all my classes with a C or better?
Did I join a club or sport?
Did I push myself to take challenging classes this year? 
If you answered NO to any of these questions, come see me to discuss what YOU can do to
be better prepared for College and Career Readiness. 
I am available before school, during your lunch time and after school.
