Welcome to the Speech/Language Room!
I am thrilled to be back at E.P. Todd for the third year to serve the community that educated me as a student! It is wonderful to be back "home."
After leaving Todd, I continued my education at Carver Jr. High (now Carver Middle School) and Spartanburg High School. I have earned a BA in English from Presbyterian College in Clinton, SC (Go Blue Hose!), a MS in Communication Disorders from Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC, and a EdD in Professional Leadership from Converse University in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
For the 2021-2022 school year, I will be serving students in Kindergarten through 5th Grade here at E.P. Todd. My job as a Speech-Language Pathologist is to support students who have Speech/Language Impairments or Communication Impairments. I provide teachers with information, screen students that parents or teachers are concerned about, evaluate, and implement therapy for those who require Speech/Language Services. Many students need extra support with their communication skills, especially when it begins to impact how they are doing in class.
