Spain (JG)

I am a state licensed ASHA certified speech-language pathologist in a public school district in North Carolina. I have a very diverse caseload and particularly enjoy working with children who are English Language Learners (ELL) at the elementary level.

In undergrad, I participated in a short term study abroad program in Mexico where I traveled to various cities such as Guadalajara, Guanajuato, San Miguel de Allende, and Mexico City. The experience sparked an interest in learning the Spanish language outside the classroom walls and I found myself spending the summer after graduate school in Madrid, Spain as an English tutor. I will say that I learned the bulk of my Spanish during that immersion experience!

Now that I am married with two little girls, traveling is a bit more challenging, but my passion for the Spanish language and culture is still strong!

My goal with this blog is to share my experience as an English speaking SLP who works with Spanish ELL students. Look out for blog post topics that range from assessment and treatment ideas, goal writing, and any fun research articles I find, to app reviews, and any miscellaneous topics that relate to bilingualism.

I truly hope the information on this blog is resourceful to you as a reader, and you leave with a little more confidence on how to effectively service your caseload of bilingual Spanish students!
