not make New Year's resolutions, but I do set goals for myself, and one of them
is to perpetually look for new ways to treat patients that are fun and creative
On a recent commute to
work, I was excited to hear a story on NPR's Morning Edition: ''Singing
Again.'' I immediately thought ...
the winter holiday break coming to an end, I'm mentally preparing myself for my
newest venture as a school-based SLP -- the role of a cooperating teacher! As I
had mentioned in a previous
blog, from 1/3/12 through 3/9/12, I'll have a graduate student extern.
I had also mentioned, this is a first time experience for me! ...
Now we all have our New Year resolutions. Some people want
to lose weight, others hope to get better organized and many desire to spend

As we walk
into a new year, 2012 has many promises ahead for those who simply

always excited about new experiences and expanding my horizons at work. This
school year has been no exception. At the start of this school year, I blogged

I love to hug children
Hugs feel so good
I'd hug them every day
If only I should.
But hugs are for parents
Grandparents and such
Professionals should go with
High fives, knuckles and thumbs
Today, on Thanksgiving
Give your family your best
Squeeze them with hugs
Save high fives for the rest. ...
Thanksgiving break is so close I can almost
smell the turkey! If any of you are anything like me, you really NEED (and
deserve) this break! There's a lot about working as a school-based SLP that is
stressful, agitating, time-consuming, irritating...you name it! Anything from
