Hello! I am Amy Purdy and I have been a speech-language pathologist in Omaha Public Schools for 23 years. I am originally from Valley, Nebraska and I come from a family of teachers. This will be my first year at Standing Bear. My experience has been pre-k through high school age 21. My areas of interest include: expressive and receptive language disorders, articulation, autism and social communication, and speech and language of students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
I have a master's degree in speech-language pathology from UNL. Several years ago, I earned an endorsement in Reading Instruction from UNO.
I provide speech-language services for children age 3 to fourth grade. Some areas of service include: articulation, fluency, voice, and language.
Standing Bear is my only assigned school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I very much am looking forward to working with team of dedicated professionals here at Standing Bear Elementary School!
