Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Amanda Shire
I am so excited to begin my second year as a Speech-Language Pathologist at Thompson Junior High School. After high school, I attended Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Illinois. After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, I worked as an Administrative Assistant at Northwestern University in the Alumni Relations and Development Office as well as the Center for Audiology, Speech, Language, and Learning. I developed my passion for speech and language and decided to continue my education at Saint Xavier University in Chicago, Illinois where I received my Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology. I love working with the students and staff at Thompson and am looking forward to a wonderful year!
