My name is Sonita Newsome. I have been a Chandler USD Speech/Language Therapist since 2006. Before that I was a Speech Therapist in New Jersey.

My Education and Professional Background

I received my undergraduate degree in Communication disorders (Speech Pathology) from William Patterson University. I received my Master's degree in Curriculum Instruction from University of Phoenix. I have completed my Doctoral program in Educational Leadership from Argosy University and currently working on my dissertation focusing on “The relationship between teacher preparation and student achievement in Arizona public schools�. I am certified and licensed through the state of Arizona.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe the study of communication, is practiced and applied by our students and ourselves on a daily basis. As a result, we teach by what we do in the classroom as much as by what we say. By modeling good communication for our students, within the subject matter we also teach with enthusiasm. I strongly value the diversity of learning styles as well as the unique perspectives that my students may bring to the therapy room and their classroom.
