Ms. Leah Preisser
7th Literacy: Maroon
Hi! I'm Leah Preisser (pronounced: Prizer), and this is my eighth year teaching at Parkview for 7th grade Literacy.
I am an Ankeny graduate, and I am delighted to be back at Parkview as an educator. I majored in English at Iowa State University with endorsements in ESL (English as a Second Language) and Reading. After graduation, I moved to California and worked for C.A.R.D. (Center for Autism and Related Disorders) as a Behavior Analyst/Therapist with students in the Los Angeles and San Diego school districts for two years. I received my Masters at Drake University in Teacher Effectiveness and Professional Development in Education in May 2015.
I enjoy helping young people develop an appreciation for reading and writing by incorporating technology, by relating to personal interests, and by developing individual goals in the classroom.
