Greetings and welcome to my page!  
 
I started working a Woodfin Elementary School in March 2013, and really appreciate being here and getting to know all of our kids.  Just to tell you a little about myself, I have worked in public schools and in private practice, and truly enjoy helping kids to find their voices, which is of great import in this life.  I hold a teaching license (K-12 with secondary English), and was a classroom teacher before becoming a speech therapist.  And I teach piano in my free time, because music is one of my best joys. 
 
As for speech at Woodfin,  I have a very student-centered approach, and we work on all kinds of communication skills such as:  speaking with clear speech sounds, improving social language, increasing vocabulary and expression, learning how to understand others well, and speaking fluently.  In speech sessions, we use a variety of materials, with an emphasis on literacy and creative art work, which are excellent media for meeting speech goals in a manner integrated with academic targets. 
 
I feel honored to work with the children who come to work with me and truly appreciate witnessing them as they learn and grow!
