Yolanda Castellanos has been teaching in colorful Colorado for 14 years and the subject she teaches is Spanish. Castellanos has taught two other subjects apart from spanish, those are math and science. Castellanos  said her favorite subject to teach is spanish. I asked Castellanos what she hopes to achieve with teaching and this is what she said, “To encourage some students to learn some language so that one day they can apply it in situations.”

Castellanos told me a story on how she started to teach. “It’s a long story but to keep it short, I am originally from Colombia in South America so I started to think more about money at the beginning, to get a profession that gets me money. But I ended up in different situations and was talking with other people and my youth group at church. I ended up looking for something that I really enjoyed doing. And even if teaching isn’t a lot of money I still enjoy it.”

Castellanos likes to garden, read books and watch movies. Castellanos had a good answer when I asked her what she would do with a millions dollars if someone randomly gave her that amount of money. “Traveling, investing, and also giving.”

Her passion is writing. When I asked Castellanos how she liked Centaurus so far she told me, “I can go to my 7th hour and I have different students from sociological and economic backgrounds. But I love that class, they are so interested. I like how my students are trying to get connected. My goal at Centaurus is to make connections with the students so i can really plan good lessons according to their needs.”
