Mrs. Torres

Hello, my name is Celina Torres and I’m glad to be here at Desert Star. I’m a native to Arizona and moved to Avondale in 2012. I was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona and taught there from December of 2005 until May of 2013. In Mesa, I gained the experience of teaching fifth through first grade. I began teaching the K-1 combo in August of 2013 here at Desert Star.

At home I have a supportive husband, a baby boy and curious stepdaughter that bring joy to my life. I’m blessed to have a supportive family. My family also consists of Bubba and Monster (my loving, loyal and friendly dogs) and my green-eyed cat, Lulu - who lives for her meal times (she’s a little chubby). 

I’m excited to see how much progress the students are going to make this year academically. This is going to be a wonderful year for everyone. Let's make this an enjoyable and unforgettable year!

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out and speak with me. My phone number is 623-772-4638 or there is the option of emailing me at
