Welcome to my webpage!
Hi! My name is Mrs. Gross and I am SO excited to be a part of Yake’s 1st Grade team. More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your teacher! It is going to be a successful year full of fun and learning adventures. As I learn about YOU and you get to know me, our journey will be one we will never forget! I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us!!
I was born and raised in Trenton. I have a brother who is three years older than me. I am an alumni of Eastern Michigan University…Go Eagles! At EMU I finished my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. I majored in Reading and in Early Childhood Education. I was the director and lead teacher for two years at an inner city preschool program before coming to Yake. This will be my sixth year teaching First Grade. With my eight years of teaching experience, it has allowed me to learn many unique ways that I will challenge and inspire your child to be their very best. As I continue to grow as an educator through post-graduate studies, I look forward to implementing new teaching practices each school year!! My students will learn to reach for the stars!
I am married to a wonderful man, Mr. Gross, who enjoys running and watching football. We have a beautiful little girl named, Gianna. She is our pride and joy. Gianna will turn one this October.
I understand and appreciate how important your child’s education is to you. My goal is to provide your child with a positive first grade experience. Good communication between school and home will help us to meet a shared goal of the best education possible for your child! I look forward to meeting YOU and discovering what makes YOU so SPECIAL!! I am thrilled to be your “Director” and for you to be a part of this AWESOME all star “cast” we have lined up for ROOM 7. This is going to be a BLOCKBUSTER year!
