Ms. Irma Celestino

Hi. My name is Irma Celestino. I'm excited about beginning another school year filled with adventures that will become fond memories for our students for a lifetime!

Some of my favorite roles I've had the privilege of filling include being a wife to a supporting husband, mother to four wonderful children and a grandmother to fourteen beautiful grandchildren. I have also enjoyed being a bilingual teacher for many years. I graduated from Southwestern A/G University in Texas with a degree in Elementary Education. And my teaching career in Texas began with an EC-4 Generalist certificate and Bilingual Specialization. My husband and I relocated to Jacksonville, NC from Texas about four years ago. I am beginning my second year as a First Grade DLI Teacher here at Carolina Forest Elementary.

As a teacher, I focus on good classroom management and organization. And I also look forward to having a good connection to my students and supportive parents. I truly believe that those elements make learning fun and productive!
