Preston is intimidating at first. seems that he is trying to discourage students from teaching. But he has a lot of experience in education so he's very knowledgable. Grade is made up of 2 tests (midterm/non cumulative final) & a lot of papers. Relatively fair grader. Didn't learn a lot from the class, but it was better than most required courses

Very nice and helpful. Assignments are often not explained well, and they will be due before you know it, so make sure you know them and deadlines at the beginning, and ask questions if you have them. DO YOUR FIELD EXPERIENCE! Grades essays pretty easy and tests are not too hard, if you study exactly what he and the other professors tell you to stu

Mr. Preston was the best professor I have had! He is very passionate about what he does and honestly cares about his students, which is sadly rare to find at UTC. I would suggest ANYONE taking him, and I hope I am as good of a teacher as he is when I am on the field.

Mr. Preston is by far the best instructor that I have had in three years of being in college. He brings his real life experiences into the class room and goes out of his way to engage every student in his lecture. Mr. Preston is extremely knowledgeable, very interesting, and he goes out of his way to help anyone that needs it.

Mr. Preston is an awesome teacher. He's really willing to help students. At first, he seems intimidating, but then he lightens up. Really knows his stuff and cares a lot about teaching. Wish he taught more classes.

Mr. Preston is my favorite teacher. He is very passionate about teaching and knows his stuff. He is very understanding and caring and always willing to help. He tells great stories and always does little dances like the hambone. I wish he taught more classes!!

YOU DON'T NEED THE BOOK! You don't even really have to listen during class. He tells hilarious stories, so you listen anyways. He has a review for the test the class before the test. He gives you exactly what could possible be on the test, and he discusses the questions with you. EASY CLASS! I wish he taught more education classes!!!!!

He was an absolutely fabulous professor. He's really passionate about what he teaches and the stories he tells of when he was teaching is reason enough to take him. Make sure you are there on test review day, and he'll give you exactly what will be on the test.

If Mr. Preston taught any other class I would take it also. His tests are simple, yet he teaches you alot of material. Attendance is taken every day, so you have to go to class, but he will work with you if you have a problem. I loved his class. He is a great professor!!!

Mr. Preston is great but kinda scary at first. For a while I never saw him smile once and it was like he was preaching a sermon during class, very loud. But then he just became very calm and said hello to everyone who walked in the door. You can make an A in this class without breathing. He always lets u turn stuff in late too. Good man.

I love Mr Preston! He is the best teacher I've had at UTC in my 2 years. Other teachers should try to be him.... seriously. He's the greatest, has wonderful stories, and really wants his students to be the best teachers possible. You'd be crazy not to take him!

Mr. Preston brings his experience to the table and is always wanting the best for each and every student.... if this class is required then you'd be crazy to take anyone else!... He does take role everyday.
