Mrs. Criner


Hello Silverdale STEAM Leaders and families! My name is Krystal Criner and I am so excited to be a part of the Silverdale team this school year! After growing up in Swansboro, and getting my bachelor’s degree from East Carolina University, I found my way back home and have been teaching in the kindergarten through 4th grade classrooms for the past decade! This will be my 11th year in education, and I am so excited to jump into a new adventure as an Instructional Coach!

When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy outdoor activities like disc golf, hiking, and of course, anything on/in the water! I am happily married to my amazing husband, Drew, and we love living in Swansboro with our dog, Lady and two cats, Pocahontas and Julia.
