    Mrs. Ross's Kindergarten Homepage!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Kindergarten!  My name is Mrs. Julie Ross and I will be your child’s kindergarten teacher.  This is my sixteenth year of teaching in Alaska and my third year at Swanson Elementary.  I began my teaching career in Kotzebue and have been in the Mat-Su Borough School District the last 11 years. 

    I am excited to get to know each and every one of you.  I am also excited about the opportunity to work with your child.  Your child’s education is very important to me and with dedication to our children and their future we can both provide a meaningful year of learning.  I am so happy to have your child in my class!  I hope to have a close working relationship with you this year, as you are the most influential teacher in your child’s life. 

     Kindergarten is an exciting year of learning and growth.  At times I will be asking you to do activities with your child at home.  These activities, such as reading with your child, doing math activities, finding materials for science studies or working on handwriting skills will help your child to grow intellectually and to realize how much you value his/her education, so please be involved.  J
