Elm Class 2019 - 2020

Mrs Ross

Mrs Ross

I am thrilled to be entering into my third year at Whitegate and proud to be part of the Whitegate family. I am passionate about education and try to make learning fun in my classroom. Children need to be motivated to learn well.
As well as teaching in Year 2, I am the Maths lead and work with all year groups as part of my Deputy Head role.
In my spare time, I enjoy swimming, reading and exploring the outdoors. Music is also a passion of mine, although I am not an expert musician, I love listening to all genres of music and thoroughly enjoy attending live performances.
