Speech and Language at Edison
Welcome to my webpage! I finished my first year at Edison as a Speech-Language Pathologist and am so happy to be a part of the Edison Family. I look forward to starting year number two in the fall. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and my graduate degree at Northern Illinois University, receiving a Master's Degree in Communicative Disorders. I am a big sports fan, and root for the Cubbies, Bulls, and Hawks.
Please refer to the links below for additional information regarding speech-language services.
Have a fun and safe summer,
Ms. Schreck :)
"Be the change that you wish to see in the world."
Only two more days! We are finishing up our study of the body systems, which has been so intriguing. Today we participated in our last experiment. The digestive system begins in our mouth, with our teeth and saliva, as we have learned. Today we discovered that our body turns starch into sugar for us to use. During the experiment, we chewed unsalted soda crackers and let them sit in our mouths for a while as we waited to see if the flavor changed. Some of us tasted a definite difference from the first chew!
Congratulations to Sica and Nickcole for being our star students! We set goals in the beginning of the year, and these two young ladies worked hard to attain them, both at home and at school. As I told the class though, SO MANY students in our class did an outstanding job this year academically. When I look at the data, as well as think about the year, I am so proud of the kids and of the growth they have made. This is an outstanding group of students.
On Monday, we will be cleaning and taking home most of our supplies, with the exception of our art supplies. Please send an extra bag with your child so that he/she can bring home these items. Thanks!
