Ms. Alyssa Ross

Hi Clark Cougars!

I am glad you're here!  I'm in my 21st year of teaching in Texas and am excited about joining the Clark team this year.  I have a daughter who is also a high school freshman!  I love to cheer on her volleyball games, travel, and cook creatively.  I rarely use a recipe!  I also teach two night classes at UTD for future teachers.  We stay busy!

I look forward to learning and growing together this year!
