I went shopping for a job interview outfit today. Because I’m a few sizes too big for all my old work clothes now, and because mum said she’d get me something so that I had it ready today. We shopped at Target, and she came out with pants, and I got a skirt, blouse and tights…. I was so close to buying the matching jacket, but that is so not me. *heh*
So, where did the last four months go?
December was a chaotic Hell and while the time since has flown, it seems a lifetime away.
So I am seriously. consciously, applying for jobs.
i’m a speech pathologist with 9 years experience working with school age children with delays, disabilities (Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Intellectual Disabilities etc). I’m fairly awesome when it comes to supporting the inclusion of kids in both mainstream and specialist education settings. I’m also great with language impairments, motor speech disorders like dyspraxia, and love working with kids with dyslexia and other literacy issues because there’s so much some coaching in phonological awareness can help!
I want to work in or near Newcastle because that is where my support base and family are located….
Consider this a putting myself out there post
CPSP. B SpPath, M. Inclusive Ed. Awesome.
A speech pathologist walks into a grade five classroom.
A ten-year-old boy turns and looks at her.
Then looks at the deputy principal and asks
“Is this a new kid?”
I found my box with my favourite speech things in it. My artic test, my key word sign resources. I set up my room today, and my files. The practice owners bought me purple stationery, because I specified on my speechie blog profile that I “loves working with school aged kids, mucking around in the kitchen, and the colour purple.” I like this place :D
I have five clients, six if you count the other newbie I’ve just booked in. I’ve filled out my first time sheet. I’m writing up my first reports.
