She began her teaching career in the Hacienda La Puenta Unified School District at Sierra Vista Middle School and her alma mater, Workman High School. Mrs. Castanon came to Fontana Unified in 2007, where she took the leap into administration. She has served as an Assistant Principal at Fontana and Kaiser High Schools, before taking over as the Interim Principal at Summit High School earlier this year.
Mrs. Castanon is currently in training to run her first marathon.
