So glad that I didn't cause her to change careers back in '77!
More than any other teacher, Mrs Ross made you think. Stating one's opinion was fine, but you'd better be ready to back up that opinion with facts.
If anyone needed a name to go along with the definition of 'Great Teacher', there couldn't be a better choice than Mrs Ross.

I can't let the last comment for Ms. Ross end like that. She recently retired, but she was the most amazing teacher I've had in my life. Great person, great teacher, I was so lucky I was in the last class she ever taught.

When i think back to Brooklyn Tech i think of Ms. Ross. The best teacher that i ever had. She cares about her students and does a great job teaching history, which would be boring if it wasn't for her. It's not that easy, but 5s anyway

Mrs. Ross is the greatest teacher/person/role model. Honestly, she is brilliant and very articulate. The students of Brooklyn Tech are lucky to have such a resource there, and she is compassionate.

She's the coolest teacher that you will ever meet. Although watch out for her sarcasm, sometimes you don't know whether she's kidding or not. Oh and just do all that she says, and enjoy one of the most enlightening classes of your life.

Ms. Ross was one of the best teachers I ever had in HS or college. I still remember class discussions and I graduated from Tech in 1981! If you are still on the job Tech's students are blessed indeed. Mark Larson '81

I would say that she's a little to nice to some kids and like not nice to some other kids. Seriously I think she automatically assumes that some kids read and some don't read for their hw. But the truth is the ones that don't read are the ones that she dinks they actually read. She promised reading quizes but the whole term, she just gave one. I feel it is very unfair that the kids that don't do the reading, she actually likes. And miraculously they just get good grades on their test cuz they study b4 a tes
