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!
