Ross Sproul began his career in education in 1996 teaching science at the Deer Park High School Ninth Grade Campus. After three years in Deer Park, he served nine years at the Kingwood High School Ninth Grade Campus as a science teacher and campus administrator. While at the Kingwood High School Ninth Grade Campus, Ross was honored as the Teacher of the Year in 2003. Ross served as the Associate Principal at Westlake High School from 2008-2011 and as the Associate Principal at Lake Travis High School from 2011-2014.
Ross believes young people must be encouraged to succeed by being shown, through positive example, the proper avenue toward success. He was fortunate to have been raised by two caring parents who provided an example for him to follow. As a teenager he took many trips to our nation’s historical landmarks and national parks. These trips not only taught him to appreciate American history, but also taught him the value of an education. Additionally, having a father employed at NASA afforded him the opportunity of growing up around the Johnson Space Center and to experience firsthand the exciting potential of math and science. It is a result of this exposure to NASA that influenced his decision to pursue a career in education, as well as, his attempt to join the educator astronaut program in 2002.
Outside the school day, Ross enjoys various outdoor activities, riding motorcycles, running, travel, and spending quality time with his family. He is honored to serve the community of Salado ISD, and to continue the proud tradition of success at Salado High School.
