Mrs. Laurie Celaya


Welcome to my science classroom webpage.  My name is Laurie Celaya, and I teach 6th grade science and computers.  I enjoy working with middle grade students and love to see the growth as the students move from 6th to 8th grade.

Defining Moment in My Education

In college I majored in secondary education and had my sights set on a high school English teacher job. That all changed when I visited a middle school classroom and got to work with the students. They were fun, excited to learn and full of curiosity. The next semester I changed my major to elementary education and after 26 years teaching, I have never looked back.

Core Educational Beliefs

Showing students that putting forth their best effort is the path to success in life, and that's what teaching is all about.
