Ms. Joan Richardson - Speech Language Pathologist

I have been a speech and language pathologist for over 30 years, and am happy to say 24 of those years with the Harwich and Monomoy districts.  This year, I am excited to be working in grades one through four at Harwich Elementary School.  
I earned a B.S. in Education and a M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology from Northeastern University. In 2006, I went back to school and earned a M.Ed. in Reading from Bridgewater State University. I continued on in specialty training in reading, earning my Associate level at the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.
When not advocating for students and teachers, I can usually be found spending time with family, friends, or riding my bike by some beautiful beach.
