Mrs. Karen Thompson
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am excited to be starting my twelfth year as a speech-language pathologist at Webutuck Elementary school! I completed my undergraduate studies at SUNY Plattsburgh and my graduate degree at The College of St.Rose, both in the field of Communication Sciences and Disorders. I have twenty-six years of experience in the field of speech-language therapy, seventeen of which were in the NYS public school system. It brings me great joy to work with your children at the elementary school level, and to help them develop critical communication skills that are necessary for their academic and social success!
On a more personal note, my husband and I have been fortunate enough to raise two healthy daughters (ages 19 and 20) on the beautiful Wethersfield Farm in Amenia, which is the site of WES's annual first grade apple picking field trip. If you have a first grade student, it is likely that they will meet Mr. Thompson this fall! Our family hobbies include hiking, kayaking, cross-country skiing, traveling, snowmobiling, singing in the car, and spoiling our dog, Lily.
I am looking forward to a great 2018-2019 school year! If you have any questions about your child's speech-language development, please feel free to contact me at (845) 373-4122 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
