I’m Christin: part-time Speech-Language Pathologist, full-time bookworm + tea drinker, and occasional traveler.
I’m striving to find joy at home and on the road, as well as design products that make your life and teaching happier.
What i love
thoughts on faith, books, home, + travel
The blog is my space to write about things I love.

This might be controversial; I'm not sure. But to me, it feels important. In my placements, I work alone two days a week and have the opportunity to cross paths with other SLPs one day a week at the pre-k to 1st grade school. Being mostly in upper grade schools, I'm...
Mixed groups can be the worst. Who's with me? This year, I have both the fortune and misfortune of having a large group of students (around 10) who all need to be seen during the same hour block of time. Because I'm both part-time and a traveling SLP, I'm only at that...
