Graphic says:  Happy National Speech-Language-Hearing Month! “The greatest gift you can give someone is the power to express themselves."   This is such a powerful quote that has rung out to me during my career as a Speech-Language Pathologist. Whether we are working on correctly saying words or working on our language skills, I love giving my students the power to be able to communicate and to be successful in all that they do. This is why I love my job as a JCPS Speech-Language Pathologist!  - Kelly Youngblood, Speech-Language Pathologist at Klondike Elementary

Graphic says:   Happy National Speech-Language-Hearing Month!  “Excellent communication doesn’t just happen naturally. It is a product of skill, climate, relationship and hard work.”  As a speech-language pathologist in JCPS, I want my students to become excellent communicators. I teach that listening is a skill that is as important as speaking. I create a climate that makes all children feel welcome. I build relationships with each of my students, allowing them to make mistakes and grow from those mistakes. And while I know that excellent communication requires hard work, I also make sure that we have fun while learning to be the best communicators we can be.  - Kim Campbell, Speech-Language Pathologist in JCPS
