I am happy and excited to join the staff at Gateway Middle School. I will be Gateway's new Speech and Language Pathologist. I come to St. Louis Public Schools from the City of St. Charles School District, where I worked as a Special Education Teacher in a Language Classroom/Self Contained Cross Categrocial Class for the past 25 years. I graduated from Fontbonne University with a Master's in Communication Disorders. I hold certifications in Elementary Education 1-6, Speech Correction K-12 and Mild/Moderate Cross Categorical (Special Education). I have had the opportunity to work as a Speech Pathologist for Special School District as well as for Cardinal Glennon Hospital for Children prior to working for the St. Charles District. I have worked in Bakersfield, California in addition to Madison, Illinois. My areas of passion are language as it relates to literacy and reading as well as autism Education. I have received extensive training through Judevine Center, Project Access Center for Autism Education in O'Fallon, MO.
I have a daughter who is a third grade teacher and a son who currently is a senio at Missouri University of Science and Technology. I love to travel when time permits as well as write. My personal goal for the 2014-2015 school year will be to provide students with strategies that will empower them to open new pathways to increase learner outcomes. I am passionate about providing support to parents and advocating for what is in the best educational interest of all students. My students would describe me as happy, fair and creative. I plan to be at Gateway for a full day on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
