Mrs. Linda Cruz

Welcome to Crestview Elementary, a National Blue Ribbon School and TEA “A” rated campus. 

I am Linda Cruz the proud principal of Crestview and your partner in your child’s education for the 2021-2022 school year.  This year marks my 14th year in education. I began my teaching career as a bilingual pre-kinder teacher.  This is where I realized how our students can learn so much at such a young age if we challenge them to it. It was amazing to have a class of 4 and 5 years old who loved learning how to read and write!  The next 3 years I taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, before promoting into an administrative position. I had the opportunity to gain a wealth of knowledge on great instruction through my experience as a Curriculum Instructional Coordinator, then Assistant Principal. I love learning and working with our teachers and students to ensure we are always closing learning gaps.

I assure you that your child will make gains and love learning every day that they are at Crestview. We work on not only building a strong academic foundation, but we foster the “whole child”. We will work on social and emotional well-being to ensure all our students are ready for any obstacles they may encounter. It is my goal to have all our students go from “Crayons to College”. 

Thank you for your unconditional support and please know my door is always open.

In partnership,

Mrs. Cruz
