About Mrs. Hall

Dear Parents,
My name is Celeste Hall, and I am so excited to be your child's 2nd grade teacher this year! This is my seventh year at San Elijo and my 20th year teaching. I am excited to be teaching 2nd grade this year, and I look forward to having a fun and successful year with my class. I’m honored to have the opportunity to be your child's teacher!

I am double lucky to have my twins, Andrew and Evan, who are in 8th grade this year at SEMS. They are tons of fun and keep my husband and I very busy at home! They play baseball and soccer, so I usually spend most of my free time on some sort of field! I also have an nine year old named Tyler. Tyler is in 3rd grade this year here at SEES! He is obsessed with sports, so of course he plays year around baseball...just like his older brothers! Everyday they make us laugh and amaze us with how different their unique personalities are.

Since I was a little girl, I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher. When choosing a major for college, I tried to choose one that I felt would help me to be a great teacher. I went to UCSD and received a BS degree in Developmental Psychology and a minor in Teacher Education. After graduating from USCD, I attended Azusa Pacific University and earned my teaching credential and MA in Education. I feel that the education that I have received has enabled me to understand the development of children and how to be a supportive and effective teacher.

Early on in my career, I was a Title I teacher in the Vista Unified school district. Since then I have worked as a full time teacher at a private school in Encinitas, Oceanside Unified, Moreno Valley Unified, and Temecula Valley Unified. I worked in Temecula for eight years and taught third, fourth, and fifth grade. I have learned so much at every site that I was fortunate to be a part of. I strive to meet my students’ individual needs and create a stimulating and rigorous learning environment!

My goals are to build a community of excited learners who respect each other, learn to
Family picture think critically and independently, and strive to reach their fullest potential by taking on academic challenges. I am confident that 2nd grade will be both fun and stimulating for your child. With your help, we will make your child’s second grade experience a success!

I am truly looking forward to a great school year!
Sincerely,
Mrs. Hall
