Mrs. Preston

Hello students and parents!

I am beginning my first full year of teaching this year. Although it is my first year teaching, I have been at Normal Park since August 2019. I began at this wonderful school as a third grade student teacher. After graduating from UTC in December 2019, I continued my journey at Normal Park through different positions. I was a substitute teacher, a reading interventionist for a couple of weeks, and then I accepted a third grade interim position. Your child may know me by my prior name Ms. Bailey. I am lucky to have had the opportunity to immerse myself in this school and learn from such a wonderful and collaborative team over the past year.

Prior to this year, I have had three years of field experience all around Chattanooga. Also, I have spent my summers as a virtual tutor and a camp counselor. Originally I am from Mount Juliet, Tennessee, but I moved here for college. I graduated from UTC with my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education.

Outside of school, I am a dog mom of two Labradors, Scotch and Kit. I am newly married to my husband, Kayden. We are expecting our first kiddo in November. We enjoy all things outside; we love hiking, biking, kayaking, and everything else there is to do in Chattanooga. We plan on staying here for a long time.

I am so excited to be your child's teacher whether it is virtually or in person. I am open to any questions or concerns you may have, so please reach out to me. I am motivated and dedicated to having a unique and wonderful year of learning. I love being at Normal Park, and I love interacting with students that continue to inspire me!
