I am a 8th year SLP who has worked in an elementary school as well as private clinic and hospital settings. I graduated from Valdosta State University with my B.S. and M.Ed in Communication Disorders. I am ASHA licensed and certified. I work with children with an array of disabilities, but there is a special place in my heart for those children with Autism, Aspergers, and other Behavioral Disorders.
I believe in making learning fun. I have a great, fun-loving relationship with my students and take a personal interest in their school work and home lives. Discipline is a big part of my classroom, but I rarely ever have to "use my teacher voice!" We learn classroom expectations and how to respect each other from day one, and my kids rarely require "reminders!" Usually, a look will do. :)
2010 Valdosta State University Top Graduate Student Teacher Award. Blog (Let's Talk with Whitneyslp) was named in Kidmunicate's Top 75 Speech Pathology Blogs for 2015
B.S. Communication Sciences and Disorders, Valdosta State University. M.Ed. Communication Sciences and Disorders, Valdosta State University.
I love family, kids, reading, and the beach. I grew up on a cattle farm in South GA. My husband and I were high school sweethearts. We have two miniature schnauzers, two human babies, Halle Jane (6), and Easton (2), and a new therapy-dog-in-training, Lucy!
