My Personal Goal for Students
My goal is to help each student believe: You can do anything you put your mind to!
I am a graduate from UNC-Charlotte with a Bachelor's Degree in Special Education. This is my 13th year teaching academic essentials to Exceptional Children. I have been at Celeste Henkel for 11 1/2 of those years! I have the privilege to work with the best students and staff!
When asked, "Why Celeste?" My answer is because we each care about the whole child and love like family!
I have been happily married for 25 years and am a proud mother of four active and fun loving grown children. My family relocated after my husband was medically discharged from the United States Marine Corps. Our oldest son is about to join the US Navy, is a hard worker and loves to fish and spend time with friends. Our second son graduated from Liberty University in May and will be married in November! Our third son is beginning his sophomore year at the Chicago College of Performing Arts all the way up in Chicago! Our daughter is a super-senior this year at CCTL and loves her family to pieces! The newest addition to the family is Jack-Jack, a now two year old Maltese and Jack Russel mix. (We secretly think he's part kangaroo because he jumps so high and so often!) We are originally from Prince George's County in Maryland. We moved to the Mooresville area in 1999. My family and I love living in North Carolina!
