Cristina graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in Biology from Texas A&M International University in Laredo, Texas. She began her teaching career in science at LJ Cristen Middle School for 4 years and transferred to Trautman Middle where she taught for six years until she took a sabbatical to raise her three children Connor, Cooper, and Lillian.
