Mrs. Prell taught Language Arts and Social Studies Honors and College Prep for fifteen years and has served as Department Chair. Currently, she serves in a leadership capacity at the school district where she coaches teachers in applying technology into engaging lessons for students.

 

Mrs. Prell developed her love of learning because of the teachers she admired as a child. When she began her career, many of those same educators were still in the profession. To this day, Mrs. Prell's childhood teachers continue to inspire her. Many of her techniques are the result of observing, adopting and adapting best instructional practices and applying current research in education. Most importantly, curiosity fuels her passion for continued learning!

 

Mrs. Prell was named a Teacher of the Year in 2010. Teachers in Private Practice is her fifth business.
