Hello parents and families! My name is Mrs. Barr and I am the new Speech Pathologist at Eisenhower Elementary. I am so excited to be a new part of the Upper St. Clair community! It has been so much fun getting to know all of your students so far this year, and I can't wait to continue working with all of them.
I have been passionate about the field of speech and language ever since high school when I had the opportunity to attend a conference for adults with Cerebral Palsy who used Alternative and Augmentative Communication devices. That day opened my eyes to the value of communication. I knew from that day that I wanted to enter the field of Speech Pathology and help to ensure that every person has the opportunity to speak out, share their ideas, and build relationships. I firmly believe that every child has a voice, and I love working every day to help them find it!
A little bit about me...I was born and raised in Bethel Park, and now live in Oakland with my husband and 8 month old daughter. In my free time, I enjoy baking, spending time outside, exploring coffee shops, and spending time with friends and family. My favorite color is turquoise and I love all things chocolate.
I cannot wait to work with all of your students this year. Please feel free to contact me if you ever have questions or concerns about your student's speech and language.
