Always use walking feet and move safely.
Welcome! This is my sixth year at Celeste Henkel. I am thrilled about being a part of the third grade team and this community!
I grew up in Statesville and attended school in I-SS. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I earned a BA degree in Elementary Education. My husband, Ryan, and I live in Huntersville with our two cats, Cameron and Camilla. In my free time, I love to ride my horses, Winnie and Nick, and compete when I get the chance. Reading and cooking are other loves of mine. During football and basketball season, I'm a die hard Carolina Tarheel fan!
I truly enjoy teaching and love the "ah-ha" moments with students. I look forward to another exciting year with a new crew and all the growth that will take place! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!
