Meet our Teachers: Summer 2024


Christina Cruz, Lead 3rd Grade Teacher

I am very excited to meet your children! I've been teaching in urban districts for the past 10 years, currently teach at MD Fox in Hartford and am loving every minute of it! I teach first grade and my favorite thing to hear is the voice of a student who says they are having fun in my class. We are going to grow our academic skills and gain a new perspective this summer in the areas of math and reading, and we are going to have a blast as engaged, problem-solving and hands-on learners!

I'm also focused on building relationships with your students, building community within our classroom and looking around this summer to see how we can make connections and help others outside of our class circle. I am very accessible and love meeting and interacting with the families of the children I teach, and I feel it is a great privilege to be with the girls this summer. I can't wait to meet all of you!
