Ms. Rome



Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Rome

My name is Erin Rome and I am beginning my 12th year as a Speech-Language Pathologist.  This will be my 11th year at Maxfield!!!  I am a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and licensed by the MN Board of Education.  I earned both my B.A. and M.A. in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Minnesota. 

At Maxfield, I work with students in pre-k through 5th grade who have disorders in speech, language, voice, and fluency.  While most people think of me as the "speech teacher" who helps kids "say their sounds," I actually spend most of my day helping students increase their oral language and understanding of language so that they can participate in their classroom communities and access grade-level curriculum.  Additionally, this will be my fourth year as a co-teacher in Ms. Kelley's kindergarten room for literacy block! 

When I am not  at work, I enjoy reading and spending time with my husband and two daughters.  We love to be outside!
