Progressive Education Program
Classroom Teacher

Welcome to our classroom.  My name is Dianne Ross and I have been an employee of the Buncombe County School system since 2001.  I started out my career as an assistant here at Valley Springs Middle school and simply fell in love with the program.  The very next year I registered for classes in the Special Education program through Western Carolina University.  
In 2008 I graduated and began my career.  I spent my first 3 years teaching at West Buncombe Elementary, then was given the opportunity to come back to PEP at the high school level.  I taught at the high school for 5 years and just this year moved back"home" to Valley Springs.  PEP is an amazing program and I am happy to be a part of such an amazing team!!
 My assistants this year are Justyn Travers, Steve Lance, and Breanna Tomblin, who is subbing for Deanna Sluder while she is out for surgery.  We believe that coming to school should not only be educational, but also fun.  We try everyday to remind our students that we are glad they are here and celebrate their successes - regardless of how large or small they might be.
