I attended Shorter University in Rome, Georgia for four years, where I played volleyball and received my Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education. 


I have been in education for six years, and I am going into my fourth year of teaching.


My name is Christina Shirley and I am a born and raised Tiger! I am the daughter of two retired teachers, grew up in Temple, and graduated from Temple High School. After high school, I attended Shorter University and played volleyball for four years, and graduated with a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education. I previously taught 1st grade for two years, and this is my second year teaching 2nd grade!

I love spending time with my family. I am married to Jake Shirley, who also was born and raised in Temple. He teaches and coaches at Temple High School, and we have been married for four years. We have a dog named Champ, and are expecting our first child at the end of August.

I am so excited to be back home and giving back to my community, by inspiring students to love learning the way that my teachers did for me. 

It is going to be a great year!
