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 have been in education for seven years, and this is my fifth year of teaching. I previously taught 1st grade, and this is my third 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 one year old daughter, Delaney, and a dog named Champ.
