Earlier in the week I was invited to participate in a ‘Chain Letter Link Up’. Its not the crazy kind of chain letters that we immediatly delete from our mailbox, but a way to connect blogging SLPs. It was started by Teach Speech 365. She interviewed a few SLPs and then their jobs were to interview and post about other amazing blogging SLPs. I was very excited to be interviewed by Jen from Speech Universe. I got to interview her in return. Here is Jen’s wonderful interview. 🙂 * hint: there might be some freebie links as the end of the interview*
1. Your name, email, blog address, link to TpT store if you have one
2. When and why did you start blogging?
I just started last month. I had been thinking about it for a while and finally just took the plunge. I want a place where I can share ideas and force my self to become more creative with how I am delivering service. I love the community of people that is forming and really just want to grow from it.
3. What is your favorite population to work with?
I love working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders
4. How much time per week do you spend blogging and/or creating materials?
Probably about 10-15 hours.
5. What’s your favorite topic to create materials for?
Auditory memory and phonemic awareness are big skills I am workin on with students right now. I also make a lot of visual supports for communication with my students with ASD.
6. What’s the best thing about blogging?
So far, just keeping a record for myself about activites I am trying. Also, I love having links to other blogs and gaining ideas there too.
7. Do you have any blogging tips?
So far I feel like I am just winging it and learning myself. I am just trying to figure out the tech side of the blog- I feel a little overwhelmed sometimes because there is so much I don’t know!
8. Add a question and answer of your choice (can be speech related or not).
What is your favorite activity to do with your students?
I love it when I get to create things with my students, whether it is a craft or a story. I love their creativity!
