My life's purpose has been to mentor, motivate, encourage, and inspire the lives of those I cross daily. My goal is to offer a unique learning experience where minds are filled with knowledge, and hearts are filled with love. I am Timeka Ross. My students call me Ms. Ross whereas my former college track and field athletes know me as "Coach Ross". I am blessed beyond measure and each day I awake, I know my purpose has not been fulfilled and for that, I am grateful for another day. I am a proud mother of one son, who, too, is enrolled in college. Proudly, however, I originally hail from the Windy City- Chicago, IL., though I call California, where I attended high school, home! I have been fortunate to teach throughout the Blackbelt areas of Alabama and placed educational roots in Montgomery, Uniontown, Marion, Valley Grande, and Selma.
I give credit to the illustrious Alabama State University, from where I proudly earned my Bachelor's of English and my Master's degrees in secondary education- English and Educational Administration. I began my initial doctoral journey at Amridge University, Montgomery, AL., but am now enrolled at Liberty University with a degree focus on curriculum and instruction. I have impacted students' lives, and have been impacted by students' lives over the past 23 years of teaching on the high school and collegiate levels, and I do not plan to stop anytime soon! I currently teach AP English Language and Composition 10, Journalism 11, and AVID for seniors at Valdosta Early College Academy in Valdosta, Georgia.
I am Timeka Ross, and I am grateful for the journey my teaching path has provided. Overall, I am blessed and thankful for my village- family, friends, students, coworkers, and church family. God has definitely been better to me than I deserve.
