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?  

About me:

lifelong resident of Limestone County

married to my high school sweetheart

mom to three beautiful children & a precious daughter-in-law

one adorable long-haired Chihuahua named Herschel Wallace & 2 rescue "grand-dogs"

taught at Brookhill Elementary for five years, stayed home to be a mommy for 16 years, and hired at Athens Intermediate School as librarian in 2014

member at Church of the Highlands - I love praise and worship!

Favorite music: Thomas Rhett, Luke Combs, Darius Rucker, Chris Tomlin, CAIN, Lauren Daigle

To relax, I... work in the yard, play at the river, hang by the pool, cook for my family, shopping (especially thrifting!) & run to stay fit.


I am a cheerleader for reading and known as the crazy library lady!
