Ross has developed teaching techniques to help students with learning disabilities and different learning styles. She often makes copies on colored paper to help the words stand out and make it easier for dyslexic students to read and process the information.

She took a Spanish class so she can communicate better with students whose primary language is Spanish.

“When asked to nominate an instructor for the award,” said Heritage Director Andrea Riley, “Heritage was excited to nominate Tammy Ross. Her creativity and eagerness to try new things, as well as her ability to bring concepts to life with real-world examples, have energized her students and strengthened their training.”

Ross holds a licensed practical nursing license from Kansas City Community College. She volunteers for Oklahoma Medical Response Corps. She is the mother of three children.

Heritage College and Heritage Institute operates in several states. Programs include therapeutic massage, X-ray medical technician and medical assistant, surgical technician, personal trainer, dental assisting, hospital and health services management, and pharmacy technician.
