Mr. Matthew Presti
Mr. Presti is very excited to be teaching his first year at Chalmette High School. He has taught Customer Service and Sales for the past two years at Rowley Alternative School. He is a certified MERA (Marketing Education Retail Alliance) proctor and has also taught high-school English (grades 9-10) for the past three years. He grew up in Orleans Parish, attending Benjamin Franklin High School, and presently lives in Metairie. Although he is not a native of St. Bernard Parish, he likes the area immensely and the people who call it home. He has a B.A. in the Liberal Arts with a specialty in English from U.N.O. and graduated with a M.A. and certification in secondary English (grades 6-12) in 2016. One of his passions has always been teaching reading and writing, and he enjoys sharing his love of English literature with his students.
