Mrs. Dana Pressnell
Well, hello there! I am Mrs. Pressnell, the library media specialist at Athens Intermediate School. What would I tell you about myself if we met on the street as newfound friends?
I am a lifelong resident of Limestone County, and am married to my high school sweetheart. We have three beautiful children (plus our new daughter-in-law) and one adorable long-hair Chihuahua named Herschel Wallace.
I taught at Brookhill Elementary for five years, then stayed home to be a mommy for 16 years. I was hired at Athens Intermediate School as librarian in 2014. Our family worships at Church of the Highlands and Central church of Christ. I love contemporary praise and worship!
Some of my favorite things to do include: cooking and baking, gardening (plants and flowers), running 5k races, hiking, and biking.
I love to babysit our rescue grand-dogs, Olive Garden Pressnell ("Ollie" is a tri-paw, brown pit bull mix who loves to give sloppy kisses) and Indigo Anna Pressnell ("Indi" is a blonde, lab mix who sits on the couch like a person and watches National Geographic on TV).
I am a cheerleader for reading, a Skype enthusiast, and I'm known as the crazy library lady! Also....ROLL TIDE!
