Kimberly Castillo, M.A.

Educational Support Services Associate, TRIO Upward Bound Program

Hello, my name is Kim, and I'm originally from the city of Chicago and my parents are from Peru. I came to Iowa as an undergraduate student, where I finished both degrees as well as taught at the elementary and middle school level before joining the Upward Bound program at the University of Iowa. I love working with all kinds of students, and make it my mission to continue to learn as much as I can, as well as apply my learning and experiences as a first generation graduate to better serve the students I get the opportunity to work with.
