My name is Aletha Cross and this is my first year working in the Romoland District and my tenth year teaching. I have over 25 years of experience with students with special needs. Prior to becoming a classroom teacher, I worked as a paraprofessional in a Special Day class and with a specialized program for students with Asperger's Syndrome in middle school. I have been happily married to my husband (also an educator) for close to 16 years, and we have three wonderful children and a new grandbaby. When I am not enjoying my time learning with my wonderful students and colleagues, I enjoy gardening, doing arts and crafts, and binge watching streaming tv. I am proud to be a Romoland Elementary Tiger.
