My name is Martin Castillo, and I am a first year teacher at Cotton Valley Early College High School. I currently teach World Geography and World History at CVECHS. I received my Bachelor Degree from the University of Texas at El Paso, and I am currently continuing my education to obtain my Master Degree in history through Southern New Hampshire University. My goal for my students, is to make history come to life for them and get them involved with projects pertaining to certain time periods in history. I also help them to understand the world outside of El Paso, and all the different cultures and people that call this planet home. For this upcoming year, we will have several projects to complete in both World History and World Geography. Although tedious at times, the knowledge that is acquired from these projects will help my students not only learn history, but be connected to it as well.
