Krista Byrd

Hi I am Krista Byrd, Professor of Psychology.  That is me and my Jack Russell Terrier named Crosby.

I have a M.A. in Psychology from Northern Arizona University - Flagstaff and a B.A. in Psychology from San Diego State University.  Before I was a teacher, I was a paralegal in San Diego and Los Angeles, and I worked at a few law firms here in El Centro also.

I am an Imperial Valley native.  I was born and raised in El Centro - Go Spartans!  I am a former I.V.C. student.  Come by my office anytime and you can see my I.V.C. report card (way before grades were online).  I also teach psychology courses part-time at San Diego State in Calexico and Brawley.

I love teaching and I look forward to having you in my classes.
