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 I am married to my high school sweetheart. I am a mom to three beautiful children and one adorable long-hair Chihuahua named Herschel Wallace. I taught at Brookhill Elementary for five years, and I 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 praise and worship! I am a huge Alabama fan. I am a cheerleader for reading, a Skype enthusiast and I'm known as the crazy library lady!
