Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Criner

After growing up in Swansboro and attending Onslow County Schools as a kid, I received my bachelor’s degree from East Carolina University. GO PIRATES!  I then went to teach in Kindergarten through 4th grade classrooms for ten years in Pitt and Onslow County Schools. This is now my third year being an Instructional Coach here at Silverdale. 

When I am not at school, I enjoy outdoor activities like walking on the beach, playing disc golf and hiking trails.You can find me volunteering at the Market at Cedar Point on Saturdays! I love supporting local small buisnesses and knowing our local farmers/artisans!  I am happily married to my amazing husband, Drew.  We are busy new parents, as we just welcomed our first baby boy, Ben, in July 2023!
