Ms. Stonberg (Students call me Miss S.)
Speech Language Pathologist Room 14B
My Classroom: In the speech and language room, we create an inclusive, safe space for all learners. As humans, we are all working on our communication skills! I work with students in my classroom and throughout the school to become effective communicators with both peers and adults.
Students are working on a variety of communication areas, including:
*Articulation/Phonology (speech sounds and patterns)
* Fluency (stuttering)
*Expressive and Receptive Language (oral language and language comprehension)
*Social Pragmatic Language (the way we use language to interact with other people)
* Functional Communication and Augmentative and Alternative Communication
Experience: I received my bachelor’s degree in linguistics and French at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA. Between my college studies and my pursuit of my master’s degree, I taught English at a French high school in Lyon, France. I then returned to the states and received my master’s degree in speech-language pathology at the University of Vermont in Burlington, VT.
Prior to moving to San Diego, I worked in the elementary and middle school settings for the Kent School District in Kent, Washington from 2015-2017. I have been working at Carson Elementary since the Fall of 2017.
About Me: I grew up in Northampton, MA and came to visit my grandparents in southern California many times throughout my childhood.
I developed a passion for language learning when I was in middle school, which led me to my studies of French, Latin, linguistics, and communication sciences and disorders.
I love to cook, play with my cats, hike and see live music in my free time.
