Ms. Maria Gross


My name is Maria Gross and I am a 7th grade English and Pre-AP English teacher at KJH. I've started my career at KJH and have been here for five years. I received my Bachelor's degree from Texas State in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing and my Masters of Science in Curriculum and Instruction from Western Governors University. I love to read Young Adult novels, travel, eat sweets, and learn new things. I graduated from Kennedale High School in 2008. I'm very passionate about education and being a Kennedale Wildcat!
