Degrees and Certifications:
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!
