I am a seasoned verteran of more than 20 years committed to working with students, ages 3 to 21 years, experiencing speech/language disabilities. It remains my goal to nurture and provide a safe environment within the classroom. To responsibly promote the growth and carryover of students' speech/language skills, I come to their classes as well. It is here that they demonstrate communicative abilities that are respectfully used with their teachers and peers improving in the Rocket Way... "every student , every day."
I believe that speech/language skills are the foundation for life long learning and occupational success. These skills are not only integral in clear and effective communication but are the underpinnings for a host of learning including reading, writing, spelling, problem solving, and critical thinking.... Therefore the importance of early identification is imperative and many of my students begin at the age of the young man above. I am proud to support, foster and celebrate the successes of the students within the Spencer District by teaching strategies that empower!
Students and their families can expect individual differentiated plans consisting of goals which focus upon students becoming their "own therapists." It is a privilege to offer my expertise to these students because "our children are our future."
