Mrs. Amanda Hooten
Speech Language Pathologist
Barry Middle School & Early Childhood
This is my 5th year as a speech-language pathologist in the Platte County R-3 school district. This 2019-2020 school year, I serve 5th-8th grade and early childhood students at Barry School. As a speech-language pathologist, my goal is to help students' overall communication skills, including but not limited to: speech sounds, fluency, vocabulary, spoken and written grammar, social communication, answering questions, following directions, reading/listening comprehension, etc.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Cameron, and our 2 adorable dogs: a mini Austrailian shepherd and a black lab. I enjoy painting, playing & watching sports, and working in my flower/vegetable garden.
In my short time at PCR3, working with the students, parents, and faculty has been extremely rewarding. I have enjoyed watching the students as they gain knowledge, and in turn, working with them has helped to enhance my skills and knowledge base as a speech language pathologist. I look forward to working with new and familiar faces this year!
Let's go Pirates!
