    My Classroom Mission
    K-2 Mission Statement
       Celeste Henkel art students will increase knowledge and skills in the visual arts. We will do this by looking at art, using different art tools the right way, following art instructions, and trying our best.
    3-5 Mission Statement
       Celeste Henkel art students will explore elements and principles of art by looking at art of today and yesterday, discussing it, and making our own artwork. Additionally, we will follow directions and respect each other.
    About me
       It's hard for me to believe that it is my ninteenth year teaching at Celeste Henkel! I live in Statesville with my wife, Victoria, my three daughters, and one son. My oldest daughter Lilly is starting 6th grade this year at Northview IB. Campbell my second oldest is in fourth grade. My youngest daughter Genevieve is in second grade. Asher my youngest, is in pre-school at Broad Street United Methodist Church.
       When I am not teaching, I enjoy being active at the rec. center, running and walking with my family, attending church, reading, and creating art. 
       I'm originally from Pennsylvania. I attended Edinboro University of Pennsylvania where I received my degree in art education.
       I look forward to working with you and your children this year!
