Mrs. Crystal A. Cantu

My name is Crystal Cantu and I will be your child's Texas History or Science teacher.  This is my 12th year in HCISD, and my 4th year teaching Texas History.  Prior to teaching history or science, I taught mathematics for 8 years.  I graduated from Weber State University in 2003 with a BA in Education.  Most recently I graduated from Lamar University with a master's degree in school counseling.  I have three children who have all been a part of HCISD (one has graduated, one 10th grader, and an 8th grader), and my husband is a P.E. Coach at Lamar Elementary.  Between cheer competitions, Boy Scouts, orchestra concerts, Harlingen Cardinal football games, and continuing graduate courses, I really don't have much time for any hobbies.  However, when given the time I enjoy Zentangle art and going to the beach. 

I really enjoy this age group, and I look forward to working with your child this year.  If you have any questions, comments, concerns or suggestions feel free to email me, or you may leave a message with our office.
