Having started her career in Chicago, Lindsey Ross has been on the teaching circuit for a while.
She currently teaches Academic lab and English for WGHS.
Ross’ career at Webster commenced teaching academic lab in Room 024, known as the dungeon “complete with prehistorically sized cockroaches, flooding and various bird incidents” in the 2011 school year.
For the past three years, Ross has been in the classroom teaching English but “English is really something that you can improve upon for a lifetime, so I doubt I’ll ever really be finished with school,” Ross said.
“She was the only ac lab teacher that kept me on track to do my work so freshman year turned out to be a good year grade wise,” senior Tilton Yokley said.
“She would keep me on track to do homework and class work and not go down to the band room,” Yokley added.
Down the road, Ross sees herself honing in on her teaching and English skills by obtaining an additional master’s degree in English.
Outside the classroom, she plans on growing the Coffee Mug Club, centered around creative writing, that she sponsors with teachers Amie Keane and Jason VanBlarcum in Room 331 on Mondays after school.
