Mrs. Amanda Ross To All Instructors
Hello! My name is Amanda Ross, and I am so excited to be teaching at Heritage! A little about myself: I have been married to my wonderful husband Kevin for 15 years. We have two sweet daughters, Naomi and Phoebe. We feel so blessed and fortunate to have found Heritage. We love all the variety and opportunities available, which have helped make our homeschool experience even better! God called us into homeschooling, and the journey has been very rewarding for our family.
I have a Bachelor's in Elementary Education with an English major from National Louis University, and also have extensive training in special education. I worked in local public & private schools until we had our first daughter. I have been a stay-at-home mom since having our girls, but have continued to work in education by creating a private tutoring business for children from the elementary level up to college. Our family is also super blessed to be active in our church, where I currently serve as Assistant Pastor’s wife, lead the Teen Girls’ ministry, and am our church liaison for a local pregnancy center. Overall, I have more than 25 years of teaching experience.
The best, most life-changing experience that ever happened to me was accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. After years of living under a false profession, God in His infinite mercy pursued this girl until I finally surrendered to His will for my life. To God be all the praise for any teaching ability that I have--without Him, I am nothing. My best ideas come from the Lord. To Him be the glory for it ALL. I hope to meet some of you in the Shurley Grammar program this Fall!
