Mrs. Amanda Ross

Welcome to Second Grade! I am so excited to be your child's teacher! This is my 14th year teaching in the Waynesville School District. I have taught fourth, third and second grade.

I graduated from Waynesville High School. I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Drury, a Masters Degree in Education from Southwest Baptist University and Special Reading Teacher K-12 Certification through Missouri State University.

I am married to my husband Ted and we have four kids; Noah, Preston, and Aubrey. Noah is in college and living in Tennessee. Preston is starting 6th grade at the Sixth Grade Center and Aubrey is starting 2nd grade at Freedom this year. We are having our last baby, Kaylee this Summer. I will be on Maternity Leave at the beginning of the year.

I love going to the beach, reading, spending time with family, watching my kids play sports, and shopping at Target and Hobby Lobby. :) 

Please sign up for the Remind App to get Class Announcements and messages about your child's day. This is also a great communication tool that will be used frequently when I return from Maternity Leave. Freedom also has a Remind Code to connect to. This is a way to not miss any information that is coming out. This is VERY important!

You will be getting information and important dates from our class sub while I am on leave. Please make sure you are checking your student's folder daily. 

I look forward to working with you and your student this school year. I know we will have an amazing year!!!
