Hello! Welcome to another great year of learning and growing at Jefferson Elementary School! My name is Barb Lark. I am one of Jefferson's Speech and Language Pathologists and am here most Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
This is my 3rd year at Jefferson and my 33rd year in the Everett Public Schools. I received a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in the area of Speech and Language Pathology from the University of Washington. The focus of my continuing education has been the use of assistive technology (augmentative communication) for students with complex communication needs.
My favorite quote comes from Daniel Webster “If all my possessions were taken from me with one exception, I would choose to keep the power of communication, for by it I would soon regain all the rest.”
When I am not at school, I enjoy tending my garden and my small flock of chickens.
The students, staff and families at Jefferson provide a wonderful sense of community. It is a fantastic place to learn and grow!
