Mrs. Kimberley Preston
Hello I am Mrs. Preston. This is my third year at Ashland Elementary. I am excited to be teaching second grade again this year. I am a graduate from University of Missouri-St. Louis. I am married with 3 children
I believe no 2 children are the same. We all have our own unique learning style. It is important for us to of my own
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 2nd graders will continue learning with the new language arts program we began in the 2019-2020 school year called CKLA. Students will be grouped with other students of like ability and smaller groups so we can teach and they can learn at a pace suitable for them. Keep up the great work and keep our students reading at home too!
Students will also be experience a new type of grading this year, Standards Based Grading. It will focus on students understanding and mastery of standards rather than just completing assignments.
Parents and guardians are all provided with my contact information as well as how to access ClassDojo which is our main means for communication. If you do not have access to Dojo for any reason Please contact Mrs. Preston via the phone number that was provided or by email at Kimberley.Preston@slps.org
