Linda BrownSpecial Education/Inclusion Teacherlinda.firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Allie Jensen, and I am the speech-language pathologist here at South Hi Mount Elementary. I am originally from San Antonio (Go Spurs!) and attended the University of Texas at Austin for my undergraduate degree and the University of Texas at Dallas for my graduate degree. I am a huge Texas Longhorn fan and enjoy attending or watching UT sports in my free time (Hook Em’ Horns!). I also am the proud mom of a golden retriever named Strawberry Lemonade.
My professional interests in speech therapy include childhood speech and language disorders, social language/pragmatic differences, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
I was born and raised in Fort Worth. I attended Tanglewood Elementary, McLean Middle, and Paschal High School. I have a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education and a Masters in Elementary Education from TCU. Go Frogs!! I also have a Masters in Library Science from UNT. This is my 15th year in education. I taught in the classroom for 6 years, and this will be my 9th year as a librarian at SHM. I absolutely love my job and helping kids get excited about reading! I enjoy traveling with my family, reading, and going to TCU football and basketball games.
Lori D. Tarbox, RN, BSN
I have been a Registered Nurse for almost 30 years, having first earned an Associate Degree in Applied Science and Nursing at Tarrant County Jr College, then later my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
I was born in Ft Worth, Texas, and have lived and worked in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Florida. I have a broad range of clinical experience, including Neonatal ICU, Home Health, Dialysis, Neuro ICU, Med/Surg, Mother/Baby, Newborn Nursery, and Postpartum. My current position as the School Nurse at South Hi Mount is by far one of the most rewarding nursing experiences I have ever had, and I hope to be around a very long time!
My greatest joys are spending time with my children, family and friends, art, walking and playing with my poodles, traveling to new and distant places, camping and hiking.
I am excited to serve as the Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP) for South Hi Mount Elementary. I graduated from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in 2018 with a B.S. degree in Child Development and Psychology and obtained my Education Specialist degree in School Psychology at Baylor University. My professional interests include behavioral disorders and Autism Spectrum Disorders. In my free time I enjoy hiking, swimming, and spending time outside. I look forward to supporting the behavioral and social-emotional needs of our students!Kyra AndersonDyslexia
