Hello My Name Is...

Celesta Carter

I am a 2nd grade teacher at Rivermont Elementary. I live in East Ridge with my husband Evan and our rescue dog Xiao. I am originally from Tracy City and Winchester, but I moved to Chattanooga in June 2017 after I got married.  Prior to teaching at Rivermont, I taught for five years at Coalmont Elementary and one year at East Lake Elementary.  I got my teaching degree from Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, TN, which is where my husband and I met. I realized my passion for teaching during high school when I worked at an elementary after-school tutoring and enrichment program. I love making a difference in the lives of children.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, skating, and playing escape games. I'm just a board-game-and-Disney-loving kid at heart.
