Crissta Walton, High School Classroom Teacher for EnglishClassroom Teacher

MA, Texas Tech University
BA, Lubbock Christian University

Crissta Walton graduated with her bachelor’s degree in English Language Arts with a minor in Humanities from Lubbock Christian University. She recently earned her master's in English Literature at Texas Tech University. 

Crissta has several years of experience working with high school students and Kingdom education. She taught several years at Lubbock Christian High School, before deciding to pursue a master's degree. 

Having grown up in the public school system, she recognizes the infinite benefits of teaching using a Biblical worldview; it adds depth and relevance to the material being covered. Crissta’s teaching philosophy is two-fold: first, she strives to help each of her students grow as readers and writers, prepared to join the modern world; secondly, she seeks to make sure her students have a big-picture perspective of the world, that they are able to view people, society, history – everything – through God’s view established in the Bible, to benefit them in their own walks with Christ.

As an imaginative child, Crissta often would build stories and worlds with her neighborhood friends and cousins. When Crissta entered middle school, her love for stories turned to those found within the pages of the books on the library shelves.

Crissta is a native of Lubbock, TX, where she lives with her husband, a wonderful, godly man who encourages her both in Christ and her career. 

Crissta has been teaching with the Academy since 2019.
