    A Bit About Me:

    My name is Kristi Augustine, and I currently serve as the Lead Reading Instructional Coach for PreK - 5th grades.  I came to River Pines in 2021 and absolutely fell in love with my Treefrog family.  Last year was my first year as a literacy coach, and I am very proud of the success our campus had.  Our campus has been recognized as the campus with the greatest student growth regarding STAAR scores in Humble ISD for the 2021-2022 school year! What a blessing it has been to roll up my sleeves and work alongside such dedicated professionals and incredible students.  These Treefrogs have my whole heart, and I TRULY BELIEVE these kids (and teachers) are capable of anything they put their minds to.

    Before coming to River Pines, I taught at Goose Creek CISD and Huffman ISD as a self-contained classroom teacher.  I was honored to be a Neuhaus district liaison and Lead Teacher for Huffman ISD, which kick-started my interest in working with adult learners.  I have also worked as a private tutor and have been elected to various Boards of Directors for parochial schools.  I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, Literacy Studies and from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies.  In addition, I am a Texas Certified Reading Specialist for Early Childhood through 12th grade and hold a Texas Certification for English as a Second Language for Early Childhood through 12th grade. 

    Empowering children is my passion!  I have 3 core beliefs that I stay true to and let guide me in all that I do.

    1.  I believe all children have a RIGHT to learn! 

    2.  I believe all children CAN learn! 

    3.  I believe it is MY JOB to ensure it becomes a reality!
