You’re a speech pathologist. Can you tell us about an average day at your job?
I work at a K-3rd grade elementary school & I am on my feet a lot. I am in 3 kindergarten classrooms everyday working with students on language (writing, vocabulary) & letter-sounds. I also provide speech & language services to small groups of students with special needs in my therapy room. I pick them up from their classrooms & also drop them off. I go into every classroom in the school once a week to co-teach a social skills program with the school psychologist. I have a lot of energy! The kids keep me on my toes.

If you could give your 16 year old self advice, what would you say?
