Welcome to Speech!

Hello families and students-

  My name is Nicole Root and I am excited to return to Waite Park for my 10th year!  I have been a speech therapist for the past 11 years, 9 of which I've spent working in the Minneapolis Public Schools.  A little bit about me:  I live in Minneapolis with my husband, son, and 2 crazy dogs.  We like to ride bikes, swim, spend time with family and friends, travel, go to the cabin, try new restaurants (and visit our favorites too!) and be out in nature as much as we can! 

In my classroom we work on different skill areas: articulation, language, fluency, and voice. If your child has an Individualized education plan (IEP) with goals in one or more of these areas, they will be working with me as specified on their plan. 

I look forward to working with your amazing children this year. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at any time and I will do my best to respond as quickly as possible.
