Ms. Alyssa Ross
Hi Clark Cougars!
I am glad you're here! I'm in my 22nd year of teaching in Texas and my 2nd year at Clark High School. My daughter, Mia, is a high school sophomore. We love to travel. I'm trying to get to all the MLB stadiums and all the presidential libraries. Yep, history nerd and baseball fan right here! I also enjoy cooking creatively. I rarely use a recipe! I teach two night classes at UTD for future teachers. Mia loves to use her cricut, paint and hang out with friends. We also love our dog, Poppi!
We stay busy!
I look forward to learning and growing together this year!
