MS Speech Language Pathology
Mrs. Jessalyn Loy
This school year, I will be serving my ninth year as a school based speech-language pathologist but my first year serving the students 2nd through 4th grade at Foley Elementary School.
I received my undergraduate degree from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, Illinois in 2008 and my masters degree from Illinois State University in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois in 2010. My family has recently relocated to the Gulf Coast and we are SO very excited to be here.
As an Speech-Language Pathologist at Foley Elementary School, I am dedicated to facilitating speech and language acquisition and development in all students and in particular those with communication disorders. My purpose is to help students find their unique voices as they use language to think, learn, affirm their ideas, and develop social relationships.
I work collaboratively with and provide resources for administrators, teachers, parents, and special educators in their efforts to develop goals and instructional strategies that support academic achievement. We practice respectful, open communication that fosters creativity, welcomes new ideas, acknowledges individual talents and contributions, and promotes teamwork. My commitment to continuing professional development strengthens my ability to advocate for our students and their families.
I look forward to meeting and working with you!
Go FES Lions!!
