ONE WOMAN...ONE DREAM

Hello, I’m Christine Celis!  I’m a former teacher with professional experience in both public and private school classrooms.  I’m also a passionate educator to my two young children and a life-long learner.  

For years, I held onto a pipe dream of opening my very own learning center. I envisioned a place where kids could learn through play (without even realizing that they were learning). I imagined a place where kids could ask their own questions (and answer these same questions) by designing their own experiments. I dreamed of creating a safe place where all children could feel proud to be smart…a place where it was cool to be nerdy…a place where everybody could demonstrate their intelligence if given an opportunity. 

This past October I turned my pipe dream into a reality…the impossible into I’m possible!  With only a passion for promoting STEM education in the community, I started Pure Genius as a non-profit educational learning center.  I am beyond blessed to now have the opportunity to help others discover that they too are passionately curious.
