Mr. Ernie Celaya

Welcome Message: Hello, my name is Mr. Celaya. I am currently entering my 23rd year of teaching, with the past 22 years here at Cross. I currently teach Physical Fitness and Weight Training, but also taught Math early on in my teaching career. I have been the after school tutoring coordinator for the past several years, as well as Athletic Supervisor for after school sports. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Education from the University of Arizona in 1998. I completed my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University in December of 2016. I am looking forward to advancing in my professional career by becoming a principal or director of human resources. In my spare time I love to work out, play guitar, watch sports, and spend time with my family. I have a wife and two daughters. One attends the Vail School District and the other is a Junior in college.
