Mrs. Renee Strickland

My husband and I have have three children (ages 16, 35, and 36). I am one of the Speech-Language Pathologists serving students at Polenta Elementary for the 2022-2023 School Year. I worked in private practice for 2 years and this is my 23nd year with Johnston County Public Schools. I worked at Cleveland Elementary for 9 years and this is my 14th year at Polenta. I love being a school-based Speech-Language Pathologist and enjoy working with elementary students of all ages and ability levels.
