My Students

“It is not how much you do, but how much love you put into the doing that matters” – Mother Teresa

For the past 14 years, I have watched many students develop into role- models and adequate citizens.

My students know that I am one SLP who cares about them. They see me as role model and often tell me that they want to be "speech teacher" when they grow up. It just lights up my world that I can make that kind of difference in their lives. My students are wonderful. They are always willing to participate, very respectful and helpful. It's all about building a relationship. It has brought to tears to see many of my students return for visit to share their success stories of getting into college.

My students are stricken by their communication deficits. My goal daily is to help provide my students with a voice so that they are more confident and engaged in their learning. I have noticed that my students have demonstrated increased skills in their speech and language abilities. They have become more independent, outspoken and interactive. Their compassion for learning constantly shines and I just love it.

My Project

I work with students in various grade levels and like to imitate routine of the general education classroom, such as siting on the carpet to have turn and talk discussions. The dry erase board would provide visual support for written tasks for my older students. Currently my classroom does not have a functional writing board. It is always important to provide the students with enriching language activities. Lastly, during small group many of my students would benefit from increased visual stimuli to pair with words due to their difficulty with reading and comprehension. It would help a great deal using tablets to incorporate in their learning.
