We take great pride in their shared passion for helping students succeed, and we love passing along their insight to inspire others interested in this rewarding field. This time, we’re spotlighting an outstanding speech-language pathologist, Beverly P.!

Here, Beverly shares why she decided to become a speech-language pathologist, what she enjoys most about working with the Cross Country Education team and schools, and what advice she has for school SLPs just embarking on their careers.

Why did you become a speech-language pathologist?

When I first went to college, I planned on becoming a buyer, but I wasn’t interested in the courses that were required for that field, so for a while, I was unsure of what I wanted to declare for a major. Then I heard one of my co-workers at a restaurant where I was working part-time talk about speech therapy, something I had never considered. It sounded perfect! I remember having to go to a speech therapist when I was in first grade and decided that a career helping students would be very rewarding.

What do you like about CCE?

I like the responsiveness from the staffing professionals at CCE. They are always trying to find the perfect fit for me.

What have you liked about working at the schools with CCE?

When I need more time to service all the students or money for materials, CCE has been able to make that happen with the districts where I have been placed.

What advice would you give someone starting out as an SLP?

Don’t limit yourself to one area as a speech pathologist. Try working in several areas to broaden your understanding of the profession. If you are going to work in schools, see if you can teach for a year or two or shadow a teacher for a while to get a better understanding of what is going on in the classroom. Your therapy will be better if you coordinate it with the classroom lessons. And always be open to new strategies.
