I want to extend my warmest welcome from the Learning Center team. My name is Mrs. Megan Gross, and I am excited to see some new and familiar faces as I continue at Alta Vista as the K-2 Learning Center Teacher. We will have many wonderful opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.
I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Wichita State University and graduate degree in Special Education from Emporia State University, both in Kansas where I started my career in education in 2008. I joined the RBUSD team in my current position in the 2013/14 school year. When not at school, I enjoy traveling the world or exploring California, leisurely bike rides along The Strand, playing volleyball, and drinking lots of coffee.
My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique and learns in a different way. One of my jobs as a teacher is to help each child discover his or her individuality and work alongside them so each child feels successful.
We look forward to a wonderful school year with lots of growth!
