This is Mrs. Preusser’s fifth year at Prospect Ridge Academy (go Miners!). A National Writing Project fellow with 15 years of teaching experience at both the middle and high school level, she is excited to work with freshmen at PRA. She double majored in English and art history at Williams College, earned an M.A. in secondary English instruction and curriculum from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and received an M.F.A. in creative writing through the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast program. Her debut picture book, A Symphony of Cowbells, was released in March 2017 by Sleeping Bear Press. When she’s not teaching, reading or writing, Mrs. Preusser enjoys telemark skiing, rock climbing and learning ridiculously long German words, such as Formfleischvorderschinken.
