Welcome to a new school year. I hope everyone had a wonderful summer, and I look forward to jumping into the 2017-2018 year!My name is Amy Guthrie, Potowmack's Speech Language Pathologist. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology, and Master of Science degree in Communication Science and Disorders. I graduated from Florida State University (Go Seminoles!) with specialized knowledge and experience working with early intervention and school-aged children, and students with autism. I received my Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association in 2014. I’m excited to be back for my fifth year at Potowmack Elementary school, and I truly look forward to seeing some familiar and new faces throughout the year.
We will be doing many exciting lessons and projects that will engage students in their learning. I’m positive that we will all grow and learn this year. My goal is to motivate and encourage your children to be the best possible students and to help them grow in pursuit of their full potential. This challenge will only be met with the cooperation of ALL three parties — students, parents, and me.I've included some resources regarding norms, milestones, and other information regarding speech and language skills to browse. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!
