About Me                                                                                                                                                           
Welcome to my Blog!  My name is Mrs. Ross, and the 2018-2019 school year will be my seventh year teaching at Stargate, and I am so excited to be working with such a wonderful team and amazing gifted children! I graduated from Metropolitan State College with a BA in Behavioral Science and a minor in Elementary Education.  This summer I completed my Gifted Endorsement and plan to continue my education in gifted studies. Before I came to Stargate, I taught preschool at a neighboring Montessori school for 4 years.  There, I learned that each student is a unique individual that has individual needs and learning styles. I still keep in touch with many of the families.

I am a Colorado native and recently celebrated my 7th anniversary with my husband, Jamie.  I also have a 3 year old son, Odin.  Odin takes up most of our time, but we love to hike, bicycle, camp, and explore Colorado to the fullest together as a family. This summer our family took a trip to Pennsylvania and upstate NY to visit family.  We had a great time exploring that side of the country, including Niagara Falls.  I consider myself to be a life long learner; I enjoy learning about and doing new things.  I am a major Bronco Fan and enjoy watching and attending games. Every summer I plant a garden- this year we had jalapenos, Serrano peppers, tomatoes, and strawberries!

Blogging:
I will be creating three blogs (which are highlighted below).  They cover Theme (Homeroom), Literary Arts, and Math.  All of my blogs support RSS, so you can watch just the blogs that interest you by subscribing to them on the blog pages.  It is our 1-2 policy agreement to have our blogs done at the end of the day on Monday.  I try my best to have them completed by the prior Friday afternoon.   

Grading:
I keep all grades on Infinite Campus which you can access from the menu.  I update grades once a week!  If you have any questions or concerns about grades, feel free to contact me by email!
