Ms. Raquel Castro » Home


Mrs. Raquel Castro has been part of the Hilldale School community for over a decade in a variety of capacities. She started out as an after school staffer and continued through the years as a substitute teacher.  Mrs. Castro  holds a B.A. in Music Education from Mills College and has taught elementary school music at several schools in the Bay Area.   She started her teaching career as a volunteer with a program called Music for Minors (MFM) and six months later was hired as one of their permanent teachers.  She has worked with MFM teaching up and down the peninsula making music accessible to students who might not otherwise receive a music education. Mrs. Castro is thrilled to bring her passion for music to Hilldale, and the school is delighted to have her as the Music Teacher for K-8th Graders.  She brings joy, knowledge, and creativity to her musical teachings.  Mrs. Castro is full of ideas for how to celebrate the musicianship of the students while forwarding their education and providing opportunities for performance. Her hope is to leave every student she teaches with a song in their heart.
