Mr. Presti is thrilled to be teaching English IV and Business English for his seventh year teaching at Chalmette High School.

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 and poetry with his students.
