    My name is Maria Burnham, and I am very excited to be joining the SCIS community this year! Travel and diverse cultural experiences, have always been a priority for me, however this is my first opportunity to actually live and work abroad. I was born in Canada, educated in Hawaii and Utah, and started my career as a school-based SLP in Washington, USA. I have a masters degree in Communication Disorders as well as certification from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. I come to SCIS with 7 years of experience working to collaborate with teachers in providing holistic and individual therapy for students with speech and language difficulties. I believe in working as a team with parents and teachers to help children learn to generalize their skills beyond the therapy room. I’m passionate about early intervention and look forward to working with the students on the ECE campus. Here’s to a wonderful year!
