The Teacher Spotlight is a weekly piece where we feature our leaders at Melissa Schools. Check back each Monday to meet a new teacher!
This week’s Teacher Spotlight shines on Roxanne Gross from Harry McKillop Elementary, nominated by Principal Leanne Bush. Mrs. Gross teaches 2nd Grade, and this is her fifteenth year in Melissa.

I took a detour from classroom teaching and worked with adults in training and development, and later as administration at a community college. After I had children and watched them learning I knew I wanted to work with other children, helping them to learn and develop.
I love to teach science. All children are naturally curious and love to explore, investigate, and experiment.
My favorite Core Value is loyalty. Everything we do is done with the best interest of the student in mind. That is why we are here.
Without a doubt, the best thing about being a Cardinal is the whole package that it brings. Our community supports us, our local businesses support us, and we support each other. We are a very close community and it shows in so many ways.
