My name is Jeanne Hansen, I have been working for Saint Paul Public School since 2006 as a Speech Language Pathologist. I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings including elementary and high school. I have spent the majority of my career working with middle school students and find them to be truly a blessing. I love getting to see them mature and make connections with their own learning.
As a speech language pathologist I get the chance to work with a diverse group of learners. This is one reason I became a speech langauge pathologist-the diversity! I can work with individuals from the time they are born and then until they are no longer with us depending on the setting. I have choosen to go into the school setting because I feel the needs of the learners are important and the skills I can teach them will be used through out their entire life, not just middle school.
