We reached out to Rose to hear directly from her about her experience with Ross and as an instructor. Read her responses below:
How long have you been at Ross as an instructor?
I have been here almost 2 years.
How did you get your start in teaching and why it is important to you?
I got my start actually teaching at church Sunday school and homeschooling my children. I think it is important to me because I have seen teachers giving up on their students and no one should ever be given up on. Anyone can learn if someone is willing to help them and do whatever it takes to get that accomplished.
What is your favorite thing about being an instructor at Ross?
When they finish school and they get the job they really want and you know you had a small part in them achieving their goal.
What is a piece of advice you try to convey to all your students to help them succeed?
To never give up on their dream – keep trying and be willing to start anywhere to get your foot in the door.
What are you passionate about personally?
I am passionate about always learning!
Who inspires you to be great?
I am inspired by God and my students.
Share a positive memory about your experience at Ross that stands out to you. Why is that memory special to you?
After I accepted the Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration instructor position, I actually got scared and told Ms. Barker that I didn’t think this was a job for me. She encouraged me to try it at least. That memory is special because I faced the unknown fear, and now I know I’m right where I always want to be.
What is something most people don’t know about working as an instructor at Ross?
I think a lot of people would be surprised to know about how much work is really involved in being a good instructor.
What is the most rewarding part of being an instructor here?
When students succeed!!
