Presley Davis has had a love for reading from early on; she began writing in first grade with her Rosie and Allie short stories. She has continued to write ever since and often uses her own family as inspiration. Presley has a little brother Khy, who is three years old, and an older sister Rylee, 26. She also loves to be creative through sewing, painting and drawing. Presley enjoys attending Compass Charter Schools because she can pursue her studies while also finding time for her passion for writing. It is her second year at Compass, and she is so grateful for the excellent education that she is receiving.
Her supervising teacher Ruth Chavez-Rivera, shares, “Presley is an extremely independent and creative scholar who absolutely enjoys reading and writing her own stories. She is incredibly imaginative and resourceful. I am excited and looking forward to seeing more original stories from her.”
Introducing The De Roses is a fun-filled adventure of a family with five children who set off on many exciting expeditions, like visiting their Aunt, who is not experienced with children. Presley shares that some of the authors she admires are Beverly Cleary, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Eleanor Estes. She loves light-hearted books that have a family focus.
Presley shares, “I write because it is fun! And so other people can enjoy what I’ve enjoyed. When I write, I can be imaginative, express how I feel about things, and preserve experiences of mine and my family! It would be a waste just letting those stories be forgotten!”
Presley’s most significant role model is her learning coach and Mother, who teaches her while working as a professional make-up artist. This thanksgiving, she is thankful for her family. As a Compass Family, we are so proud of you, Presley. The sky is the limit!
