Degrees and Certifications:
I am Marie Simmons and I have been a preschool Speech/Language Pathologist for over 25 years. I specialize in preschool speech/language development, oral motor planning disorders, and developmental delays.
I am happy to say that I am starting my 14th year in Johnston County Schools. I enjoy working with the staff and the students throughout the county.
I am originally from New Jersey, but I've been here for 33 years y'all. I got my B.S. degree in Speech Pathology from ECU in 1985 and my M.S. degree in Speech Pathology from UNC-CH in 1986.
I have been married to my best friend, Mark for over 33 years. We have three children, John a Grad from Appalachian State, and twins Catie and Emily who are grads from NCSU and ECU. People always ask what I like to do in my spare time and my answer is "What is spare time?"
