    Riverside Rams! Melinda Castillo


    Welcome Students and Parents!

    I have been teaching in Loudoun County since 2008, and I am excited for another great year at Riverside High School. My goal is to create a classroom environment that is fun, educational, and relevant to the real world. I want to teach you skills that last a lifetime!

    This year, I am excited to teach Fashion Design & Merchandising, Introduction to Housing & Interior Design, Human Development, Gourmet Foods, and Independent Living. 

    I strive to create a positive, nurturing environment where students are respected, challenged, and motivated to reach their potential and accomplish their goals. Please feel free to contact me frequently, as I have an open door policy and look forward to working closely with parents and students.
