About Kris Taylor...
Position: Speech Language Pathologist
Welcome to Speech Therapy! My name is Kris Taylor, and I am the SLP here at Andersen Elementary. I look forward to getting to know you and your child and to working together as a team to improve communication skills.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Speech Language Pathology from Mississippi University for Women in 1995 and a master's degree in Speech Language Pathology from San Jose State University in 1998. I am licensed by the Department of Education, the Department of Health Services, and hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech Language Hearing Association. I have worked in schools as well as in the private sector in Nevada and here in Arizona with preschool and school age children with communication disorders including articulation/phonology, language, fluency, pragmatics, hearing impairment, and augmentative communication.
My Educational Philosophy
The ability to communicate is what connects us to other people. Communication can take many forms and it is my job to find where students are at in their skills and help them to move forward to be the best communicators they can be.
