Mr. Manuel Castillo

Hello Strike FamiLE! 

All the lessons and activities are hosted on Canvas (, accesible anywhere where there is an internet connection! Activities are submitted every Friday (unless otherwise noted in Canvas).

Technology Applications 6: digital citizenship, Google Suite (Docs, Spreadsheets, Slides), multimedia (creating, editing, and publishing), and creating simple websites using HTML and CSS.

• Technology Applications 7: HTML, CSS, CSS frameworks (mainly Bootstrap), and jQuery. Students will be able to quickly prototype with responsive web design in mind.

• Technology Applications 8: Javascript. Students will learn to create simple to complex programs using the console, logging, value/types/operators, variables, conditional execution, loops arrays, array methods, objects, functions, and abstraction. 

• Investigating Careers: how do we choose a career pathway we really like? What are the best practices to get a job? This class is full of practical, real world, relevant activities.

About me: I have been teaching for the past 11 years, grades Pre-K to 12. I have Bachelor's Degree in Communications, and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. I have done some computer programming with Python, Ruby, and Javascript (which is taught in Technology Applications III). I also like creating websites using HTML/CSS/frameworks/design tools (which is taught during Technology Applications II). I'm an advisor to a group of former students who are creating their own CSS framework :)

 My free time is spent going to bicycle trails, traveling to new places, cooking, listening and creating/recording music (I play quite a few musical instruments and I know my way around some recording digital audio workstations). I'm also interested in networks and cybersecurity. 

Tutoring: Monday and Wednesday at 8:00am.

Hope to see you soon!
