Hello Twain Nation,

I am your proud principal, Mr. Castro and am looking forward to an exciting school year.  While I realize for many of you who have had children here for two or three years, you’ve seen two principals before me.  Well, I plan to stick around awhile!

My top two priorities are simple:

  1. 1) Raise student achievement, which means building a culture of high academic expectations
  2. 2) Re-establish structure, discipline, and order so that learning can occur

I am a product of San Antonio ISD, so I know the great things that our school district can do!  It is my duty to ensure that every child has the best possible opportunity for success after their three years at Twain, but more importantly, after their four years in high school.  I certainly attended great schools and was fortunate to have great teachers inspiring me to do great things.

I attended Woodlawn Elementary, Tafolla Middle, and graduated from Brackenridge High School.  I graduated from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas with a major in History.

I quickly entered the teaching profession in 2000 at my alma mater, Brackenridge High School where I taught social studies.  Five years later, I took a job as an Administrative Assistant at Brackenridge and decided to get my Masters degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Texas at San Antonio.  After graduating from UTSA, I was promoted to Assistant Principal in 2009 and moved to Highlands High School as an assistant principal.  Having spent the past three years there and working to change and build a positive school culture there, I was called to come to Twain and become your next principal.

I am happily married to my college sweetheart and we just had our first baby on July 4th.  In my spare time, I enjoy going to the movies, working out, going to the gym, and running.

I enjoy working with our kids and showing them all of the possibilities that lay ahead for them.  I am a success story from SAISD – it’s my turn to show our current students how they can be a success story, too.

I invite you to get active and/or stay active in your child’s education.  We need your help to ensure that your child becomes an SAISD Success Story in years to come.

Mr. Christopher Castro
