Educational Philosophy
 mission
I support the Lakewood mission statement by empowering each of my students with communication skills to assist in their abilities to learn, grow, and develop to fulfill their potential.

Educational Philosophy: I believe that providing individualized therapy services using evidence-based practices is essential to teaching my students to become effective communicators and to develop their full potential.  I assist children in making the connection between the sounds they hear and say in speech and how those sounds are represented in written language by teaching them hand symbols that represent every letter of the alphabet. Each hand symbol includes a movement to help children remember the sounds a letter makes, which supports phonemic awareness and the important early literacy skills of reading and writing.
