Jennifer Love - Speech/Language Therapy

Welcome back to our 2017-2018 school year in the speech and language therapy classroom!

Hi!   I am Jennifer Love, Speech-Language Pathologist for
Viewmont Elementary School.  

I am originally from Wilkes County, NC and attended school for both my bachelor's and master's degrees in Cullowhee, NC at Western Carolina University.  I moved to Hickory, NC in 1996 and love all that Hickory has to offer.  I hold my Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP) from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) and my NC License in Speech-Language Pathology from the NC Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology.  This is my 22nd year of providing speech and language therapy services in Hickory Public Schools.  Currently, I am based at Viewmont Elementary, in room #13, but I also provide therapy services for the students at Grandview Middle School and Hickory High School.  In addition, I serve on the Autism Diagnostic, Intervention and Coaching Teams for the HPS district.  Therefore, my hours at Viewmont vary from day to day due to other school and district therapy and evaluation needs.  Outside of my speech-language therapy roles for the district, I am the Director and 5th grade Coach for our Viewmont Dance Company and I serve on our school's Positive Behavior Intervention Support Team, Student Study Team and Website Team.

My goal and mission for my students this year is that they become better communicators.  I want them to learn how to use and understand spoken language in order to effectively share their thoughts, feelings and ideas with others and understand the intentions and directions of those around them.

I'm so excited to start the 2017-2018 school year in Hickory Public Schools and look forward to a great year!
