Speech Language Pathologist
My name is Julie Williams and I am in my 10th year of working for the Gettysburg School District as Speech Language Pathologist. I grew up in Sioux Falls, SD and then attended undergraduate and graduate school at the University of South Dakota. My husband, Nathanael, and I have two boys, Max aged 4 and Thomas age 3.
I chose the field of Speech Language Pathology during my years at O’Gorman High School in Sioux Falls. During my studies there I met an amazing mentor in the field at Children’s Home Society. I have tried my best to carry out her principles and ideals throughout my career. My beliefs center on looking at the child as a whole. As an educator I must know everything about what is going on in that child’s life in order to best serve them in a healthy way. I work with a diverse population ages birth to 21 and I enjoy every stage of growth.
My classroom is warm and welcoming. I have 2 quotes hanging on my walls and they most accurately sum up my beliefs about my profession.
1. I believe in you
2. I trust in you
3. You are listened to
4. YOU ARE LOVED
5. You are important
6. YOU WILL SUCCEED
