A WORD FROM REGINA ELEMENTARY PRINCIPAL CELESTE VINCENT
My name is Celeste Vincent and I have had the privilege of being involved at Regina for many years. My parents were public school teachers for over thirty years, but their priority was to give their children a Catholic education. I attended Regina High School for grades 7-12. I decided to join the field of educators as my profession also.
After graduating from the University of Iowa in Elementary Education, I was fortunate enough to come back to the educational system that had given me so much. I enjoyed teaching reading students in grades first, second, and third. Then, I was a fifth grade teacher. I was later called to the area of leadership and received my masters in Educational Administration from the University of Iowa. I served five years as assistant principal and then was chosen as the elementary school principal, my current school position. Regina is a very special institution that takes an ordinary life and turns it into an extraordinary life with many blessings academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. If I may be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me so that I may share all that Regina has to offer you and your family.
