Knapp, Jennifer (Speech)

Greetings and welcome to my page!

Welcome to a new year of school, and I hope each of you had a wonderful summer break.  I realize we are starting the year differently from what we've known before, and I will be learning along with all of you.  During this time, I will do my best to support all the students in speech therapy through offering some fun sessions online, as well as opportunities for practice at home. 

Please visit my education links page (see the menu on the left) to find activities which will support your child's speech and language skills. These are simple and fun, and won't take much time.  

Parents, if you need to contact me, I can be reached  via email at:  [email protected] , or you can leave word with me at our school office at 232-4287.  

Thank you, and blessings!  Miss Knapp

Who is that speech teacher?  
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 speech class with me and truly appreciate witnessing them as they learn and grow.  If you really want to know the truth, they are MY teachers!
