Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Christina Martin
I am Cristina Martin and this is my forth year teaching at Stevens Elementary. I grew up in Barcelona, Spain, and attended college at University of Girona and University of Vigo, where I studied Tourism Business and Elementary Education. I moved to Houston as part of a Visiting Teachers Program of HISD and, since then, I have enjoyed every second of my new life here in Texas. I feel very privileged to be part of the staff of Stevens and to facilitate growth and learning for the children of our community.
I love all kind of sports, specially swimming and jogging. I also love nature, reason why every time I have the occasion, I pack my tent and go camping in the countryside. One of my passions is also traveling, thanks to which I have had the opportunity of getting to know amazing places and people all over the world, and which have also influenced to shape my personality and grow my interest toward other cultures.
My Teaching Philosophy
My teaching philosophy is that everyone deserves an opportunity, regardless its origins or background. In this sense, I believe that education is a powerful tool that helps diminish socioeconomic differences and contributes to make communities better places to live in.
I like making people happy and I need very little to feel good: just a smile on your face can help me with that!
