Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Courtney Ross and I very excited to be working with you and your child this year! This will be my second year at Dorchester as well as with teaching fifth grade.I will be working with Ms. Jost for Math and Mrs. Martinez for ELA. I graduated from Springfield College and majored in Elementary and Special Education. I am currently working toward my literacy master's degree and reading specialist certification at William Paterson University. My teaching career began in Paramus, NJ, where I taught 5th and 6th in an inclusive classroom setting for two years.
I believe in creating a strong bond with my students as well as a safe learning environment, so they feel comfortable and confident in the classroom. I make sure to meet all the needs of my students and support them in the best way I can through different teaching methods that work best for those individuals. I look forward to leading students in their academic, social, and emotional growth this year.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I am so excited for an amazing year in fifth grade!
