Celeste’s journey getting back on her feet

For 21 years, Celeste Tudino worked as a banker, where she enjoyed what she did and had many opportunities to grow within the company.  After working in the same field for so long, she decided it was time to make a change and do something she would truly love. So, after getting married and having a child, Celeste decided to leave the bank and stay home for a few years to raise her son.

After 5 years away from the bank and with her son, Celeste decided to become a teacher's assistant and started a 6-week program which led her to receive a para-professional certification.  For the first few years, Celeste attended a few different schools to help teach, but her last 17 years have been spent working part-time as a teacher's assistant at the North Scituate Elementary School, where she was happy to have her summers off. For over a decade, Celeste has loved immersing herself in the school and being involved with all the extra-curricular events that are put on for the kids.
