Mrs. Preston has taught me so much. She is a wonderful teacher and is very good at explaining so people can understand very well. She is dedicated to her job and cares about each and every student. She is funny, sarcastic, never misses a good, appropriate joke, and has all the qualities of an amazing teacher. Students should try to get in concilium just so they can have her as their teacher, because she is the absolute best.

Concilium was one of my favorite classes through middle school because of Mrs. Preston-- we really learned how to write and it wasn't too serious either. FLC is very different. *nostalgia*

Mrs. Preston was my teacher from 2012-2015. She is still my favorite teacher because of her sarcasm and knowledge. I had work ethic issues and she worked tirelessly, where other teachers give up, Mrs. Preston stays determined. Mrs. Preston helped me focus and strengthen my writing skills. Mrs. Preston kept her school page up to date; she was organized. Overall, Mrs. Preston is an amazing and kind teacher who I would recommend to everyone. Enjoy the squirrel!

This advanced class it is not supposed to be "easy". Evaluating a teacher as "bad/poor" because she challenges her students to think skews the data. A great teacher invites you to earn your grades!
