Celeste is "an excellent teacher who was always well prepared, cogent, and timely. I remembered her as someone who cared deeply about the students and was rigorous in her instruction. Her evaluations for the course were exemplary." Laura Moss, PhD; Chair UBC Canadian Studies Centre; Director, UBC International Canadian Studies Centre.

Celeste "offers a very high level of instruction, while at the same time clearly understanding the students' problems. Students often characterized her as open-minded and helpful beyond the call of duty, while seeing her as a very effective teacher. I saw Celeste as one of my most efficient assistants. She approached every situation with the utmost professionalism, commitment, and care. Her work ethic is impeccable - always on time, organized, and reliable. She was also very pleasant person to work with, helpful, friendly, and supportive in her interactions with others. Overall, she is one of the the best Teaching Assistants I have worked with.
