Dear Parents,

Welcome to the new school year!  I'm thrilled to be your child's Speech-Language Pathologist this year and I am excited to help him/her improve his/her articulation and/or language skills.  Therapy sessions will begin Monday, September 11, 2017.  This year students will be building an interactive notebook during their therapy sessions.  Throughout the year, they will be bringing their notebook home to practice the skills they have learned.  Encourage your child to share his/her notebook with you and remind them to practice their communication skills at home.  The more they practice, the faster the progress!  Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 501-2901 or

Meet Mrs. Bern

I have over 15 years of experience as a Speech-Language Pathologist in the school setting. I graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Speech and Hearing Sciences. I maintain my Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCCs),  Educational Staff Associate (ESA) certificate and Washington State Health License in Speech Pathology.  I am also a member of the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) and the Washington Speech-Language-Hearing Association (WSLHA).  I began my career in the Castle Rock School District in 1999 and have continued to be dedicated to improving the lives of Castle Rock students by supporting the development of their communication skills.  I have worked with all school-age populations over the years, from preschool to high school and this year I will be working with 4th graders thru 12th graders.

Communication services at Castle Rock School District are provided using a 3-on-1 service delivery model.  Three weeks out of the month, students receive direct services that focus on their IEP goals.  The fourth week of the month students receive indirect services that may include consultation/collaboration with staff, observation and/or evaluations.

Next Indirect Week: October 2 - 6
