Welcome to my class website. I am a SLP (Speech Language Pathologist/Speech Therapist) at Westside Elementary. I am married to Carson Tanner. We have three children: Raegan, Reece, and Rachel that attend school in Polk School District. I have a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Speech Language Pathology from the University of West Georgia. I finished working on my Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln Memorial University in December, 2013. I have been a SLP for 20 years, the last 14 of those at Westside. In speech, we focus on many specific skills but with the main goal of improving communication. I work with PreK through 5th grade students. I believe communication is an integral part of a student's success, and I want to help each student that I serve reach their full potential.
If your child receives speech-language services, or if you are concerned about your child's speech-language development, please feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
