Miranda Saxe

Miranda Saxe is a speech-language pathologist employed by the Windham Southeast Supervisory Union.

 

Miranda spends time working with some of Brattleboro's youngest residents in area preschools but always enjoys coming back to her Green Street “home” to support elementary-aged students. She holds a M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology, a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Communication Disorders and Sciences, and a B.A. in Anthropology and Sociology. 

 

In her work as a speech-language pathologist, she works with students with a variety of communication disorders, including those with articulation and phonology disorders (speech sound problems), delayed or disordered language development, social-pragmatic disorders, fluency/stuttering, and motor speech disorders including childhood apraxia of speech. 

 

In her free time, Miranda likes to spend time with her family, read, tell bad jokes, and explore the world.  

Viki Caruso began her teaching career 21 years ago as a special educator in New Jersey after graduating from Trenton State College, now known as the College of New Jersey, with a B.S. in Psychology and Education.

 

She then moved to Brattleboro where she worked as a special education teacher, an educational case manager, consultant, and evaluator.  During this time she earned her Master’s Degree in Special Education from the University of Vermont. She also spent six years teaching in Massachusetts. She is thrilled to be back at Green Street School.  

 

She believes in working collaboratively with families and school staff to meet the needs of all students. When not teaching, Viki enjoys spending time with her family, which includes, but is not limited to, her two daughters and two black cats.
