Rebecca (Becky) Novotny

I am currently the Student Resource Team Leader at the Early Childhood Center. My background is in speech language pathology. This is my 9th year working at the Early Childhood Center; I have worked as a speech language pathologist for the past 13 years and have had the opportunity to be the SRT Leader in addition to being a speech therapist for the past 2 years. I have worked with students who have a variety of disabilities and I have specialized in working the students on the Autism Spectrum. This year I am looking forward to supporting all students and families by providing support and guidance through the Individual Education Plan process. Supporting children in the classroom is a process; “There needs to be a lot more emphasis on what a child can do instead of what he cannot do.”-Dr. Temple Grandin. My husband and I have 2 children who keep us very busy. When we are not working or chauffeuring our children around, we enjoying being surrounded by nature, whether it be gardening, hiking, or camping it brings a sense of piece to our busy lives.
