Ms. Kristeen Eliason

Hi, I'm Ms. Eliason.  I am the speech-language pathologist at Hiawatha Elementary School, and have been working here for the past 18 years!  I grew up in Utah and moved east to attend college at the University of Connecticut.  My husband and I then moved to Vermont for graduate school at the University of Vermont.  We loved Vermont so much that we couldn’t move after graduation!

At Hiawatha, I love helping students increase their communication abilities, whether it’s learning to articulate speech sounds, understand new vocabulary, tell stories, express their thoughts and ideas, engage in conversations with friends, read, write, or communicate with technology.  I love being a part of this community and supporting our core value of communication.   

When I’m not at school, I like to spend time with my husband, my 13-year old daughter, and my pets (a greyhound and a cat).  I also love hiking, biking, drinking good coffee, cooking, reading, traveling, and watching Star Wars.

Greetings!  I am the speech-language pathologist for the Early Education Programs at Hiawatha and Summit Street Schools.  I work with children between the ages of 3.0 years and 5.11 years of age.  I have worked as a speech-language pathologist for 40 years, with the past 6 years being at Hiawatha and Summit Street Schools.  My husband and I live in Essex and have 3 grown daughters and one fuzzy baby (our dog Joli).  When I am not at school, I enjoy reading, knitting, gardening, and walking my dog...and dreaming about traveling.
