Mrs. Cristina Silvas

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.
