Mrs. Kimberley Preston
Hello I am Mrs. Preston. This is my first year at Ashland Elementary. I am excited to be teaching second grade. I am a graduate from University of Missouri-St. Louis. I am married with 3 children of my own :2 boys (Nick and Evan)and 1 girl(Scarlett). I also have 3 dogs a turtle🐢 and a gecko! 🦎Yep a whole zoo.
I enjoy teaching and learning myself. So much in fact that I am working on my Master's in Education as well.
I believe no 2 children are the same. We all have our own unique learning style. It is important for us to find our own and understand so we can be the best pupils we can be. I understand the needs of young students and try to accommodate to best I can in our classroom.
This year our second graders will be learning with a new language arts program I am very excited about. Students will be grouped with other students with like ability and smaller groups so we can teach and they can learn at a pace suitable for them. In second grade students may be placed with one of 3 teachers for small group instruction. Ms. Burnett, Ms. Powell, or myself. So far this year it is proving to be great experience and our second graders are turning heads of teachers and administrators! Keep up the great work and keep them reading at home too!
