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!
