Mrs. Renee Strickland
I am one of the Speech-Language Pathologists serving students at Polenta Elementary for the 2020-2021 School Year. I worked in private practice for 2 years and this is my 21st year with Johnston County Public Schools. I worked at Cleveland Elementary for 9 years and this is my 12th year at Polenta. I love being a school-based Speech-Language Pathologist and enjoy working with elementary students of all ages and ability levels.
