Christina Hulin joins NIET after serving 20 years as an educator with the Iberia Parish School System. Prior to joining NIET as a Louisiana Senior Specialist, Christina served as principal of Johnston-Hopkins Elementary in New Iberia, Louisiana. For over a decade, she advanced along the career path in an NIET/TAP school after TAP’s initial implementation in Iberia Parish, serving 3 years as a mentor teacher, 5 years as a master teacher, and 5 years as an administrator at Johnston Street Elementary and Johnston-Hopkins respectively. Additionally, she taught high school English and was an elementary school librarian.
Christina’s successful experiences leading high-quality professional development and data studies, coaching teachers at a variety of levels, as well as her knowledge of the NIET Teaching and Learning Standards Rubric, make her passionate about her work with NIET. She believes that having led an at-risk school during a pandemic has provided her with invaluable challenges and successes that can be shared with other educators across the state and nation.
Christina is a motivational leader excelling in teambuilding, culture-improving, and performance increasing initiatives. She is keenly aware of cultural issues surrounding economically disadvantaged students and families and is enthusiastic about providing students with opportunities to realize their potential, achieve academic goals, and matriculate to higher education. She genuinely shares in NIET’s mission to build educator excellence to give all students the opportunity for success. Christina has also served on NIET’s ACED (Accelerating Character Education Development) Advisory Committee for the past two years and looks forward to continued work with this initiative.
She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary English Education from Louisiana State University and a Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Louisiana at Monroe.
