What’s your first and last name?
- Nicole Power
What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?
- Speech-Language Pathologist/ RTI Coordinator
How are you involved in education?
- I teach students with speech/language and literacy disorders. I work with oral and written language, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and other foundations of literacy. For the last ten years I have specialized primarily in students in grades 3-5.As an RTI Coordinator I organize and analyze our school data to help spotlight our best strengths and areas that may need more attention. I am thrilled to be part of a team that helps consider professional development options for our school. I am also proud to be part of our team of interventionists who work with students needing a little extra support.
What does your ideal school or classroom look like?
- My ideal dream classroom would be for every SLP to have a room that meets the guidelines of our SLP professional organization. That basically means that school SLPs would get a 15×15 room with natural light.
If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?
- I would share the Story Grammar Marker tool that supports students in learning story structure to learn retelling, summarizing, and writing. It’s great visual support especially for our ELL and other struggling students. The best part is that you can easily use the idea and create one of your own.
