    Welcome to Snowshoe's speech and language website!
    Mrs. Barge was born on Kodiak Island and grew up in the Matanuska Valley. She holds a Bachelor of Music Arts from Pacific Lutheran University and a Master of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Louisiana State University and is a Speech Language Pathologist with the Mat-Su Borough School District. She spent several years singing and touring with the Alaska Children's Choir and Choir of the West and credits many of her choral and global citizenship skills to her experiences with those ensembles.  Mrs. Barge is also one of Snowshoe's Drama Club coaches. When she's not working with students or singing, Mrs. Barge can be found on mountaintops, in her mom's garden, or on the couch with a good cup of tea.
    This year, Mrs. Barge is pleased to be working with Mrs. Suzanne Hermon, Speech Language Pathology Assistant (SLPA).
