Welcome to 5th grade at OES! I am elated to be your ELA teacher this year!
My name is Montasha Preston. I am a graduate of Auburn University (B.S. Elem. Ed), Troy University (M.S. Elem Ed.), and the University of West Alabama (Ed.S. Elem. Ed). Ogletree Elementary is home for me as I began my teaching career as an All-Star immediately after graduating from Auburn. Although this is my fifteenth year at OES, six of those years were with first graders. As a result of my scope of practices, I understand the art of Learning to Read versus Reading to Learn. With that being said, I LOVE "all things" literature. Thus, during my free time, I am often found engrossed in a compelling novel. I look forward to meeting each of you, learning about your literature experiences, and creating new adventures!
