Welcome back!

I hope everyone enjoyed the summer! I’m excited about tomorrow and hope your households are excited too!

Students and parents will notice a few changes to the speech/language room this year. I’m always changing furniture around to make the most of the space.  I’ve also been working with teachers and LBSs to get schedules just right for my students!

I’ve added a few links on my page for those of you looking for additional information on speech and language related areas.  I will keep adding to those as the year progresses.

As always you can email me with questions or give me a call!  Have a wonderful first day tomorrow!  I’ll be looking for familiar faces and am excited to meet new families to the school!

I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at conferences over the next two days!  You’ll find me near the 2nd grade classrooms.  Just look for my sign, appropriately named……Eltanal Expy!  If I miss you and you are interested in meeting with me, don’t hesitate to email me at eltanalj@avoca37.org.

Fall 2014

Fall is definitely here! The leaves are falling and pumpkins are popping up everywhere I go. 

I will be adding new information here every month regarding a new speech and language topic.  If you have questions or areas you’re interested in learning more about, feel free to email me.  

If I work with your child, you will be receiving a brief update right before conferences! This will be coming home in your child’s backpack.  I aim to make it to as many conferences as I can on the 22nd and 23rd. If I am unable to make it to your child’s conference due to scheduling conflicts, I will email you to see if you are interested in setting up an alternative conference.

Happy October!

A New Year

Welcome back to school everyone!  I am excited to be back for my second year at Avoca West.  The year is off and running and this is always an exciting time of year.  It’s a chance to see how my students have grown and developed their speech and language skills over the summer.

If you have any questions, you can contact me at eltanalj@avoca37.org or at (847)724-6800 ext. 331
