This is my 18th year at KPBSD as a district-wide Speech Language Pathologist (SLP). Over the years, I've had the opportunity to serve students in numerous communities; Soldotna, Kenai, Nikiski, and now the east-side of the Kenai Peninsula in Seward Elementary, Middle & High Schools, as well as the amazing small schools in Moose Pass, Copper Landing & Hope. In addition, my husband and I have had four, now adult, children schooled at KPBSD schools.

All this being said, I've seen the families, community and businesses demonstrate their support and kindness through volunteering their time, donating supplies, providing snacks and so much more! The extra boost of support most recently is greatly appreciated! There's no way for me to know how many and who they are that provided support and encouragement in various ways. Thus, I'm submitting this to the local newspaper.

Families, community & businesses please know that you are APPRECIATED! Educating the children on the KP is not only important to our future, it's a great job, each and every day! 

Thank you.
