Hello! My name is Michelle Ross and this is my third year teaching 6th Grade Science at Murray Middle School... and I am loving it!
I am currently finishing up my Masters of Arts in Teaching degree at Hamline University, which is where I earned my teaching license. I recently switched my career to teaching, I first earned my undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Minnesota. I worked in the field of engineering for about 5 years before I decided that I would much rather be working with kids and my love of science made my choice of subjects easy! I know I made a good choice :-)
When I am not working, I love to collect and listen to vinyl records and go to concerts, take my dog for walks, and go hiking and camping whenever I get a chance. In fact, in the Spring of 2013 I took a trip to Arizona with some of my family to backpack across the Grand Canyon! We hiked from the north rim to the south rim, stopping at the bottom to camp for 2 nights to enjoy the environment and rest our feet! It was an awesome experience and I can't wait to do something like that again!
I am looking forward to having another great year here at Murray!
