Dear Students and Families,
Hello, my name is Bryan Celano and I am looking forward to joining the
wonderful community and teaching team here at Saint Mary’s Catholic School! I am a
parishioner at Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church and a graduate of Grand Valley State
University. My lovely wife and I just celebrated our five-year anniversary and we have a
busy little one-year-old daughter. I am very excited to have the opportunity to have a
positive and constructive impact on both our eighth graders and all of our middle school
I am both blessed and excited to teach the Catholic faith and to cultivate an
engaging classroom with numerous ways to learn and many opportunities for your
children to grow academically, socially, and spiritually. I am looking forward to getting to
know and become a part of your child's education!
My philosophy on education is centered around the idea of creating effective
teaching experiences for students; by providing a positive and constructive classroom
culture where all students can learn by setting clear expectations, organizing an
engaging curriculum, and by implementing specific teaching strategies to support each
student’s individual learning. Students will be held to high moral, social, and academic
expectations in every part of our classroom. With the support of our families and our
school, we have the opportunity to help guide our students to lasting success.
I am looking forward to a great school year and getting to know everyone! I also
hope you are all having a WONDERFUL summer! Please, do not hesitate to contact me
with any questions.
Sincerely and God Bless,
Mr. Bryan Celano
