Speech Pathologist

 

 

Teacher Biography:

I grew up in southern New Jersey and attended Muhlenberg College, where I received my B.S. in Natural Science.  After college, I worked for two years doing in-home ABA therapy for children with autism in the Philadelphia area.  I then moved to Boston and earned my Masters in Speech Pathology from Northeastern University.  While completing my Masters, I worked as a Research Assistant and participated in two different projects focused on Voice Output Communication Aids.  After graduation from Northeastern, I completed my Clinical Fellowship in Brooklyn, NY at a preschool for children with autism.  I then moved to Portland, Maine and worked at The REACH School for six years providing speech/language therapy to children ages 1-6 with a variety of developmental disabilities.  When my husband got a job in Midcoast Maine in 2013, I began working for RSU #13. 

 

Why you like to teach your grade or special area:

 I enjoy the variety that is involved with Speech/Language therapy.  I like working with students in small groups on everything from speech sound errors to social skills.
