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.
