Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Celeste Gilmore

I am Celeste Gilmore and I was born and raised in Huntsville, AL. My love for teaching began with the wonderful teachers I encountered; especially one close to home, my father! I earned my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Alabama A&M University and Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Reading from Grand Canyon University. This will be my 13th year teaching and my third year with Madison City Schools. Before joining the Madison Elementary family, I worked in Huntsville City Schools teaching first and fifth grade; as well as, Curriculum Specialist.

It is my pleasure to be your child's teacher. I believe in meeting children where they are and helping them grow to their full potential. This year will be a challenging and exciting year of discovery and learning provided in a safe warm enviornment. I look forward to establishing and cultivating a relationship with you and your child. 

When I'm not at school, I enjoy traveling, shopping, spending time with family/friends and a good nap!
