Hello! My name is Kirsten West. This is my 9th year to be teaching at Anderson. My husband and I have three children who all attended Anderson from Kindergarten through 6th grade. My daughter is a College Sophomore at Texas A&M this year, and my twin sons are seniors at Allen High School. On Friday nights you'll find me supporting the band at Allen football games. Both of my sons play trombone in the Allen Escadrille - the Largest Band in the Land! So proud to support our awesome Allen Eagle community!
I graduated from Baylor University in 1994 (Sic 'em Bears!) and received my Masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) in 1996. I love helping children to be better communicators, and am so glad to be an Anderson Allstar!
Some things we work on in Speech Therapy include: grammar skills, social language skills, appropriate use of voice, fluency in speaking and reading, articulation skills, and receptive and expressive language skills. Please contact me if you have questions or concerns regarding your child's speech and language skills.
