Ross Perrot serves as the upper school Spanish Instructor (grades 7 – 12), 9th/10th grade homeroom teacher, and Director of Outdoor Education at Telluride Mountain School. Ross grew up in Arizona and England, and attended The Hill School, a co-ed boarding school in Pennsylvania. He received his bachelor’s degree in Spanish and Portuguese from the University of Arizona before working at Northwood School, a co-ed boarding school in Lake Placid New York. In Ross’s six years at Northwood School he served as the chair of the language department, Spanish instructor, dorm parent, rock climbing guide, and director of the freestyle ski program.
Ross is in his third year working at Telluride Mountain School. Outside of TMS Ross plays the cello in the Telluride Camarata (a classical string ensemble) with four of his students, is a park coach for the Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club, and is an avid rock-climber. Ross has worked for nine summers helping run the rock climbing, water-skiing, and trips programs at Camp Deerwood, a traditional all-boys summer camp in Holderness, New Hampshire.
Ross lives with his wife Brittany (5/6 homeroom teacher), his husky “Tuuka”, and loves the unique opportunities offered at TMS to spend time with his students outside of class.
