Thanks for stopping by The Speech Bubble SLP. This whole ‘blogging thing’ started a few years ago for me. After seeing some other speech and teaching blogs out there I thought, ‘Hey, that looks like fun!‘. So I decided to dive right in! I had no idea that the ‘blogging thing’ I stumbled upon would become such an intense passion! I started The Speech Bubble SLP to share thoughts, ideas, and activities to help professionals find ways to help their clients/students express what is in each of their ‘ speech bubbles’ <– get it 😉 After all, everyone has the right to be heard! I want to remind SLPs why they love job or maybe find a way to love it again. I want to help you see how fun your job can be no matter what setting you’re in. I want to help you save time so you can focus on your students/clients. I want to help you destress and give you the tools to be the amazing professional that you are!
So what is this bloggy, TpT thing about for me? It actually took me a while to figure that out but I finally figured out how to put into words my purpose behind all of this. My mission is to create…
I want to help you love what you do or maybe find a way to love it again! I want to help you see that you can have fun no matter what setting you’re in. I want to help you save time so you can focus on your students/clients. I want to help you destress and give you the tools to be the most amazing professional that you are. Whether that be finding a post that inspired you or saved you from hours of googling or being able to download an activity that helped you support your student.
I like letting my creative side out and making materials for my students. My goals is to always share materials that are creative and easy for the SLP while being fun for the students! My speech room is in a constant state of organized chaos, but I like to think of it as a work in progress. I hope you find some helpful hints and resources here, as well as, a place that you can ask questions and get information. All I ask is that you follow my blog or facebook page so that I can share with you. If you have questions or comments please feel free to drop me a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts, too. I would LOVE to hear from you 🙂
A few random fun, facts about me:
* I have two dogs that are adorable. I use their names a lot for speech examples so keep an eye out
* My husband and I live a country-ish area a few hours outside of Chicago.
* I have a horrible sweet tooth! I love ice cream and Red Vines…but NOT Twizzlers!
* I am obsessed with Pinterest and am constantly working on some craft project. Although, I have way more Pinterest fails under my belt than I would like to admit.
* Etsy is an awesome and addicting site, I love it!
* I love to run and have completed several races, half-marathons, and 1 marathon!
