Celena Turney 

Leading inspired change
through the arts.


Celena engaged the Visual and Performing Arts Task Force with a variety of vision-oriented, unique, and multi-modality activities.  Her talents are many and her enthusiasm is infectious!  Rarely have I seen a district task force more excited and productive.  They are singing Celena's praises!

She always seems to hold a ready supply of creative ideas at her fingertips, and finds ways to implement those ideas, in spite of slumping resources.

H. Vincent Moses, PhD, Director, Riverside Metropolitan Museum

Knowledgeable, organized, and thorough, Ms. Turney is consistently maximizing the learning opportunities for her students.

Celena's talent and skill at bringing a diverse group of stakeholders to consensus, resulted in our district having a dynamic yet workable, action plan for the Visual and Performing Arts.

Karen Preston, Board of Education, San Marino USD

Celena is a master in holding together the big picture of arts education and the practical, detailed methods of bringing those ideas and trends to life in the classroom.  She asked questions, directed us to research, gave us useful feedback about the lessons, all while cheering for us personally.  It was one of the very best collaborative experiences of my professional and personal life.
