Mr. Anthony Cristo
I graduated advanced with honors from Judson High School in 1989. I grew up in Kirby, Texas. I attended Kirby Elementary (now Hopkins), Kirby Junior High (now middle school), and finished at Judson. I have seen this area grow all my life. Prior to teaching, I directed the scoring for various state essays, including STAAR. I even wrote and compiled some of the training materials STAAR essay scorers used to prepare to score the essays. I know exactly what the state is looking for and am very capable of conveying this to students.
I love teaching at Wagner High School for several reasons. First, because I grew up less than a mile from here. I understand what these kids are going through and can relate to many of their experiences. Secondly, I graduated with Karen Wagner's nephew, Renee. This makes me especially proud to keep him informed about the school named after his aunt. I know the Wagner family and can say from firsthand experience that they are true and genuine exemplars of the best Judson ISD has churned out.
