Hello! My name is Mr. Presberry and I am one of the Learning Specialists at Battle High School. Before teaching at Battle, I was a Special Education teacher in the Belton Public School District. Prior to that placement, l taught at KIPP Endeavor Academy in Kansas City, MO. My wife (Jennifer), two sons (Eli and Samuel), and I moved back to Columbia in 2015. At that time I co-taught with both the English and Social Studies departments. Currently, I am co-teaching one section of English 9 (with Ms. Snavely), four sections of English 10 (2 with Mrs. Penn and 2 with Mr. Gammon), and one section of Academic Lab (see schedule below).
When I am not teaching I enjoy fishing, playing outdoor games with my family, playing guitar, and volunteering at my church.
