Mr. C seems to be well liked by the students and does a good job managing a large number of students and bands. My only complaint is his lack of vision with the marching band. The students are amazing and work hard but fail to place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in competitions. This is the fault of the instructor. Mr. C needs to step out of the 90"s and put together winning shows. Troy students are tenacious and more than capable but they are limited by an instructor whose unable to step outside the box
The times when he yells he can go a little overboard, but overall he's a good orchestra and marching band teacher. He's pretty funny and did an amazing job with 2016's show, "Love is a Beast".
Orchestra is generally a fun class
Great Teacher. He is really great person in general and is really funny. People who say he has anger issues are wrong. He just yells at people because they are walking through the field while we are rehearsing. It's like walking through a teacher's classroom. Don't expect to just walk through the classroom without the teacher calling you over. It's the same thing. So for those of you who think he has an anger issue, you are wrong.
Really bad teacher, but an ok person. Watch out for his PMS days. Rarely takes attendance so it's easy to ditch.
He's an awesome teacher, but he plays favorites. He's a bit moody, but be a good student and he won't be too mad at you that often. You really need to get on his good side though. He gives students a chance to play whatever instrument they'd like to.
Mr. Castillo is very genuine and caring. We can tell he makes a great effort to improve his personality and attitude. Today he was patient and understanding, and was overall a mood-booster, considering that some of us were later going to have a stressful chemistry test. Mr. Castillo is an extremely open-minded person; he is able to compromise his needs for his students', something which takes a tremendous amount of effort to do. I hope he knows that we appreciate him even when he's unhappy.
Just don't get him angry and you'll love him. He is so funny and nice. Just listen to him when he talks and your year will be blessed!
He's harsh but fair. Everybody loves him when he's in a good mood. He's definately got a temper, but he makes you smile more than cry. :)
Castillo really has a anger issue. Once, someone knocked on his door and gave everyone a detention. He's the worst ever, but to compensate, his assignments aren't too difficult. AVOID HIM AT ALL COSTS.
has mood swings; doesn't keep what he says he'll do; he may have favorites; can be hilarious; hires hard instructors
Best teacher ever! Gave me a chance do something with music and i took it. I'm gonna join again next year!
This guy is truly awesome. He has some great enthusiasm for band, which makes it all alive. Everyone can identify with him very well. :)
he's so unfair. he treats his favorites super nice while he treats others like they're nothing. he's NOT a good at music either.
i used to LOVE music but because of mr castillo, i now hate music with a passion.
bad bad teacher... thinks everything is centered around him...
WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH HIM. yeah just yell to the whole class. LIKE THAT WOULD CHANGE ANYTHING! seriously.
doesn't listen to what important people have to say about his program, plays favorites
I cannot stand him.. seriously, dont tell us something's due the last day of school and then count it in our quarter grades so our 'rents get all on our cases..
