Welcome to Dance!
Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Stephanie Ross
My name is Stephanie Ross. I am the dance teacher here at Aledo Middle School, teaching both 7th & 8th graders for Dance PE and Dance 1! I have been teaching dance for over 12 years, and this will be my 5th year teaching in the public education setting. Before coming to Aledo ISD, I spent four years as the Head Coach for the 5A competitive dance program at A&M Consolidated High School in College Station, Texas. I am excited to now call Aledo ISD home and looking forward to growing our middle schoolers!
I have been dancing myself for almost 20 years, with experience both in studio and in school dance. In addition to teaching at school I regularly teach technique intensives & camps, private lessons, and choreograph competition/performance routines for teams & soloists. Back in high school I served as both the 1st Lt. & Captain for the Mansfield High School dance team. I then went on to dance in college as a 4 year member of the Division 1 Aggie Dance Team at Texas A&M University- Whoop! I graduated in 2016 with a B.S. in Kinesiology and a minor in Coaching. I also have a Masters Degree in Sports Management from Texas A&M, and recently graduated in May 2021.
I've been married to my awesome husband Jordan for over 3 years. We just moved back to the Fort Worth metroplex for the first time in 9 years, and he is also a teacher & coach over at Boswell High School. We have two dogs who are spoiled rotten and we love way too much, Remi & Rio (you'll see lots of pictures of these two!) We will also be welcoming our first human child, a little girl, this December (get ready for pictures of her too!) With both my husband and I being lifelong athletes and coaches, there's lots of sports and fitness in our house. We also love the outdoors, spending time with family, cooking, and relaxing on a patio on the rare occasion we're home together.
I can't wait to meet each of you and get to know you during our time together! See you soon!
