Favorite Quote: "Greatness lies not in being strong, but in the right use of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own."
-Harry Ward Beecher

My favorite thing about teaching: One of my favorite t-shirts says, "I teach kids to talk back," & that IS my favorite thing about being a speech-language therapist here at WBES. Whether it is a child whose speech is difficult to understand, a student who has difficulty putting sentences together well, or any of the other areas in which I support a student, it warms my heart & brings a smile to my heart when I see or hear them communicate in similar ways as to their classmates.
