Miss Jennifer Pressly
Hey guys! Welcome to my website! Welcome to Ms. Pressly's ALE classroom. I am excited to get to know you and your family this year!
Here is a little bit about me:
This is the beginning of my 7th year of teaching, all at Wood, just in gaps of years. I started my career in teaching in 6th grade English in 2007. I taught that for 3 years and then taught all girls 7th grade Tx History. Then I stopped teaching to have my two boys, Brayden (2011) and Cameron (2014). Once I got divorced, I returned to Wood and my Wood family teaching 8th grade Reading in 2018. I had the opportunity to move on to the ALE position and follow my passion for working with unique individuals. I am passionate about what I do, so much so that after this last year, I am currently pursuing a double masters from UTPB in Special Education, with a focus on Lower Disabilities and Autism, and working towards certification to becoming an Educational Diagnostician. I believe that everyone has a voice, but some are so special that it takes a specific person to hear it. I am excited to continue on this journey with you guys and I know this year will be the best yet, despite the challenges with distance learning and being in a pandemic. Just know, that when you are in my class, you are loved, cherished, and you matter!!!
Things I love:
my kiddos, my labs ( I have 2- chocolate and yellow),
working with kiddos, running,
laughing and singing,
traveling- mostly for fishing and the beach/river, and always,
