M.A. Teaching, USC
B.A. English, Whittier College

Mrs. Allison Castro was born in Glendale, California. She attended St. Finbar Parish School for grades 1 through 8. She was then proud to attend our very own Providence High School. It was at Providence that Mrs. Castro was involved in the Media Focus Program and the Cheerleading team. It was also at Providence that she met her now husband, Greg. And in 2013 they welcomed a son named Jordan who will one day be a Pioneer!


Mrs. Castro always knew that teaching would be in her future. After graduating from Providence in 2002, Mrs. Castro went on to earn her B.A. in English from Whittier College. She then went on to attend the University of Southern California, earning her M.A. in Teaching as well as her Teaching Credential in English. After a brief teaching experience in a public school, Mrs. Castro felt passionate about returning to Catholic school education. In 2008, Mrs. Castro taught 9TH grade English at Providence while assisting with ASB. She then went on to St. Genevieve High School to teach, and in 2012 she became the Vice Principal of Academics. Mrs. Castro has also worked as an online adjunct faculty member for Ashford University working with teachers in their undergraduate work.

 
In 2014, Mrs. Castro felt called to rejoin the Providence community as principal. The opportunity to be principal is a real gift for Mrs. Castro, and she feels grateful that she has made her way back home. In her spare time, she enjoys roller-skating, reading, and traveling. She looks forward to working closely with students and teachers to discover that Pioneer spirit!
