Mrs. Finno

Hello!!! Thank you for stopping by! :)

 

I am the speech-language pathologist at Beverly Skoff Elementary.  This is my third year at Skoff and my ninth year in the Valley View School District.  I earned my masters degree in Communication Disorders from Northern Illinois University in 2009. This past summer I accepted a part time position at Saint Xavier University.  I will be supervising graduate clinicians while they diagnose speech and language disorders and provide treatment to their clients.  I am excited to further my knowledge in my amazing field, as well as challenge myself with this new position! 

 

A little bit about me :)  I met my husband in high school and we were prom dates!  I don't know where I would be today without his love and support.  We had our first baby in October.  Her name is Lucy Belle. I can't put into words what she has brought to our lives.  She loves to smile and interact with people.  I have loved watching "language development" happen right before my eyes. Lucy makes us happy and proud every day.  Our other pride and joy is our dog Luna.  She is the best big sister to Lucy.  Her loyalness and unconditional love makes our family complete.  

 

Outside of work I enjoy staying active with dance fitness classes and walks.  I also love taking pictures, going to see musicals, traveling to new places, shopping, and spending quality time talking to my friends and family.  

 

I am very grateful to work with the students, families, and staff members at Skoff!  I look forward to improving the communication skills of all my students this school year. Please don't hestiate to contact me with any questions.  :)
