Hello! My name is Cristina Silvas. This is my 9th year of teaching, with my 5th being at SGS. I taught 1st grade for a year, then went on to 2nd grade for three years. Here at SGS, I have taught 4th and 5th grade math, 5th grade science, and now, I am very excited to be teaching 4th grade self-contained, all subjects. I have also coached/sponsored the SGS Cheer Team for the past 4 years.
I attended H.M. King High School here in Kingsville, and then I went on to Texas A&M Kingsville. Initially, I started with Journalism in mind, as I enjoy writing and photography. Later, I found my true passion to be teaching after substitute teaching at local elementary schools. I graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education along with, a certification for English as a Second Language for grades Kindergarten through 6th.
My husband Adolfo and I have 2 daughters. Aubrey is five, and is in Kindergarten here at SGS. Carley is one, and is now walking, talking, and learning new things everyday.
I truly believe we never stop learning, and everyday is a new opportunity. My goal is to provide the greatest learning environment I possibly can, and ensure I meet the individual needs of each of my students.
