Subjects Taught
Second Grade


I am a professional educator with a bachelor's degree in grades K-6.  I attended Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, TN from 2007 to 2011.


This is my 7th year teaching, but my first year in Hamilton County.  I taught for one year at a private classical school in Cookeville, TN and then for five years at Coalmont Elementary near my hometown.  In those years, I have taught both 2nd and 3rd grade, but 2nd is my favorite!


My name is Celesta Carter, and I was born and raised in Tracy City, TN.  I've always been close with my family, especially my younger sister.  This past summer, I married my college sweetheart and moved to East Ridge.  I was fortunate enough to get a job at East Lake Elementary, and I look forward to what the year holds.  Working with children and helping them to learn is one of my favorite things.  When I'm not at school, I enjoy traveling, reading, music, and trying adventurous things (wall climbing, rafting, paddle boarding, rappelling, escape games, etc.).
