Welcome to Speech with Mrs. K.Melissa Marois Keifer M.S., CCC-SLPSpeech and Language PathologistReed Elementary School
Hi! My Name is Mrs. Melissa M. Keifer! Fondly referred to as Mrs. K. by many of our students and staff. I am the primary Speech Language Pathologist at Reed Elementary and this is my 7th year at Reed and in Allen ISD. While this year is starting off a bit different than any other, I am looking forward to working with our Reed Owls on their Speech and Language goals whether in-person or virtually!
If we haven't met yet, here is a little more information about me! I live in McKinney with my husband Weston, and our 4-year-old son, Rex. Baby K2 is on the way and due in November. We also have a sweet dog named Lucy, who has been part of our family since 2008. Mr. K. and I moved to Texas from Boston, MA in 2012. I received my undergraduate and master’s degree from Emerson College in Boston, MA (GO RED SOX), and was born and raised in Massachusetts. Mr. K. is the Technical Director at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas and was raised in Plano, TX.
My hope for all of our students at Reed, is that they all learn how much their voice matters. I firmly believe that relationships are the foundation to the success of our students, and I work hard to develop meaningful relationships with our students and families.
Mrs. Keifer AKA Mrs. K.
