Tracy Ross is a kindergarten teacher at Centennial School who has been described as a strong advocate for her students and is “fierce in her fight to do whatever it takes to support them”. Tracy believes all of her students can succeed!
As a classroom teacher, Tracy carries children along a continuum of success. She creates spaces where students are confident, growing in ability, and motivated to learn. Her classroom is an eclectic mix of resources that support the intellectual, physical and emotional needs of all her students.
At the school, Tracy is the “go to” person when new initiatives are brought forth. As a former Education Support Teacher for literacy, Tracy approached her colleagues in a supportive manner and worked to support change on an individual basis.
Tracy quickly establishes a trusting rapport with the parents of her students and they recognize that their most precious treasure is in safe hands. With little assistance she takes children, many who lack school readiness skills, and moulds them into willing learners.
Describing Tracy, one colleague stated that, “Tracy is the most talented and professional educator I have ever known. Her commitment to this trade and her enduring approach to improvement challenges all who work alongside her”.
