Ms. Danielle Katen M.S. CCC-SLP
Hello Meeker Families!....My name is Danielle Katen, but our students call me "Ms. K". I am very excited to be the Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) at Meeker for my second year. As a SLP, my responsibility is to complete evaluations and provide therapy to our students identified with speech and language challenges. My goal is to give them the tools they need so they can feel supported and be successful learners in the classroom. I'm so fortunate to be part of an incredibly talented team at Meeker.
I graduated from Louisiana State University with my Master's of Science Degree in Communication Disorders in 2003. I have spent the past 16 years working with children and adults in hospitals and schools. I continue to further my clinical education by earning specialized certifications in my field and keeping up with current research and best practices. My passion is sharing my experience with my students and providing a positive environment so they are motivated to achieve their individual goals. I enjoy collaborating with our teachers to help create and implement various methods that accommodate the unique learning styles of our students.
I enjoy spending my free time with my family and friends. You will often find me hiking with my dogs, cycling, skiing, traveling, horseback riding, cooking or gardening. I'm looking forward to having a successful school year. I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to work with you and your child. Please don't hesitate to call or email me at anytime. Thank you!
