Welcome to our Classroom Website
    My name is Mary Fernandes, and I'm the new Speech Language Pathologist at Northdale Middle School. This is my third year working in the district and my first year working at the secondary level. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Iowa in French and my master's degree from the University of Minnesota in Speech Language and Hearing Sciences. I'm here to support your student's academic achievement and access to the full middle school experience. I have experience working in the areas of articulation, language, fluency, AAC, and voice.
    In my personal life, my husband and I just welcomed a baby girl into our lives. Somehow she is already rolling around, and despite my familiarity with child development, I can't quite believe it. I am very interested in foreign languages and speak French and Portuguese.
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
