Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kristianne Dierkes

I joined Homestead Elementary as a speech-language pathologist in 2019. I graduated from University of Washington in Seattle with a Master of Science in Speech and Hearing Sciences in 2011. Prior to joining the Homestead team I worked for a non-profit organization providing early intervention services to children birth-three and school-based therapy in both public and private sectors. I also provided speech-language and feeding therapy in a clinical setting and completed evaluations as a part of a medical diagnostic team.

Speech therapists help children say what is in their hearts; that is why speech therapy is my passion and how I found my way to Homestead. I am privileged to work with a team of professionals who share my passion to help children succeed in the academic setting.
