During school closing:
Remember to practice your speech goals . I have added some great apps, websites and home ideas to use with your child while school is closed. You will find the ideas under assignments on my home page. Please let me know if you need more support with your child's speech and language goals during this time. Please email me with any questions you may have.
All about Mrs. Baker:
Schools: Rockmart Middle School and Rockmart High School
Speech and Language
Educational Philosophy: I believe each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. I will help children to develop their potential by believing in them as capable individuals. I will assist children in discovering who they are, so they can express their own opinions and nurture their own ideas. I have a vision of a world where people learn to respect, accept, and embrace the differences between us, as the core of what makes life so fascinating.
