Lyda Castellanos

Hello Jackson Family!

My name is Lyda Castellanos, I am originally from Colombia where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Metallurgical Engineering.

I am married with 2 kids and they are Plano ISD students. My daughter is a senior and my son is a 4th grader.

I've been in Education in different roles like volunteer mom, PTA Board in the Cultural Diversity Chair, Bilingual Assistant, Spanish Teacher and now I am so blessed to be a part of the PreK team at Jackson.

When I'm not at school, I'm a soccer mom. I also love being outdoors walking with my dogs, cycling, dancing Colombian folklore and studying.

I'm looking for a year of growth, fun and love for learning!
