My name is Lelandra Ross and I am excited to be your child's Pre-K teacher this year!
I was born and raised in Saint Paul and I am a graduate of Saint Paul Public Schools! For elementary school I went to J.J.Hill, middle school was Ramsey Jr. High and for high school I went to Central.
I recently just graduated in April 2019 from Metro State University. I earned my degree in Urban Elementary Education. This is my first year teaching, but I have been a Teaching Assistant for SPPS for the last 5 years. I love Pre-K because this is a child's first exposure to school. They are learning through play and we (families and me) foster that. I want students and families to feel that their voices are heard and have positive connections with school. So please feel free to contact me!
Things I do outside of teaching: I exercise regularly, any chance I get I try to travel. I love getting out and exploring different countries and cities. Any place with a nice beach and the sun are my go tos however, I will travel to less sunny places too 🙂. I am also a BIG foodie! I love to eat and try different kinds of food. I absolutely love mixing chocolate and caramel together in a malt from Dairy Queen.
Please stop in to give me a chance to meet you and your family.
