State High School Educator of the Year
TeDese Ross always goes above and beyond to help the most at-risk students to believe in themselves, gain trust in school/staff and to prepare for life after high school. On a daily basis, he goes the extra mile to not only make sure the students understand all subject areas but are also receiving the necessary support to be healthy socially and emotionally. TeDese is an athletic, charismatic, sincere, and experienced educator with a wealth of knowledge. He is a team player who never complains, and never criticizes or condemns, just brings a positive vibe of peace and motivation to both staff and students.
