My name is Celeste Shelton and I am thrilled to be starting my teaching career at Ascent Academy! I started my education at Boise State University and after a 15-year break to raise a family, I decided to continue to pursue my life-long dream of becoming a teacher. I received my bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho, earning a degree in University Studies with a minor in Education and a minor in Marriage and Family Studies. I have worked with children my whole life and I am so happy to be teaching 1st grade this year at the new West Valley location.
I was born in Salt Lake City but raised near Boise, Idaho. My husband and I have been married for almost 17 years and have four beautiful daughters, ages ranging from 7 to 15 years old. My family and I recently made the move from eastern Idaho to the area. We are excited to begin this new adventure in our lives in a new state and community. As a family we love to watch movies, go hiking, and spend time together. I enjoy reading, running, and baking goodies.
