    My name is Amy Wright and I’m the speech-language pathologist (SLP) at Cottonwood Creek ACTION school. In 2001, I graduated with my Master’s degree in speech-language pathology from Minot State University in Minot, North Dakota. After graduating, I worked in Canada for one year and I’ve been working for the Mat-Su Borough School District ever since! When I’m not at work I enjoy camping, baking, cross country skiing and reading.   

    We work with many speech/language therapy students twice a week in small groups.  This year, Miss Sheila is the speech-language pathology assistant working at Cottonwood.  Anita Mosier, another SLP at Cottonwood, provides speech therapy for a few kindergarten students.  During therapy, we occasionally complete seasonal and holiday activities, usually focusing on seasonal vocabulary.  Please let me know if you prefer that your student does NOT participate in seasonal activities.


    New procedures in speech therapy due to COVID-19: 

    -larger classroom (downstairs across from 1st grade)

    -increased distance between students during therapy

    -grouping students by classroom, as much as possible

    -wearing masks or shields in speech therapy as much as possible

    -reduced amount of shared materials

    -sanitizing tables and chairs between groups

    -”plexiglass” barriers between students and between student/teacher


    There are some instances when we may need to remove our masks or we may need to ask your student to remove his/her mask.  For example, when we demonstrate correct speech sound production, or during articulation or language testing. Please contact me if you have concerns and we will develop a plan for your child.  


    At the end of each quarter, you will receive a progress report from speech/language therapy.  If you do not receive this progress report, or if you have questions or concerns at any time, please email me at amy.wright@matsuk12.us or call me at 864-2121.  My room is downstairs, across from the 1st grade classrooms. 


    I’m looking forward to a great year of speech therapy with your student, no matter where or how we are learning!
