Prior to discovering Kindermusik®, Ms. Castillo graduated Summa Cum Laude from Loyola University Chicago in the United States with a business degree in marketing.

She has been an academic scholar throughout her school years, and has been singing since the age of three, performing in various choirs, ensembles and local productions. She also plays the piano and organ.

Of all her passions, Teacher Jeannie is most dedicated to her role as mom to her eldest son Jamie, who first inspired her to become a Kindermusik educator, and her youngest son Jack who has been a Kindermusik Kid since he was in the womb. Together with her husband Jaime, Teacher Jeannie is an active, hands-on parent to both her sons, being a firm believer in the important role that we parents play in our children's growth and development. As a dedicated parenting and family advocate, Teacher Jeannie shares:

"I love teaching Kindermusik, because it combines my love for learning and music, while honoring parents and children, families, in the learning process . . . to me, there is nothing more beautiful than seeing a child dancing in his mother's or father's arms, feeling completely and totally happy and secure. I am so blessed that I get to share in these precious moments of our Kindermusik families . . . Kindermusik is truly a magical experience that I am privileged to share with the children and families in our community."
