More than 20 of Fairdale’s diesel and heavy equipment seniors have secured postsecondary opportunities—either a job or a program of study. “The opportunities here are endless,” said one student!

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
