Mrs. Michele B. Farr, M.A./CCC-SLP

Hi. I am the Speech-Language Pathologist at Gamewell Elementary and Gamewell Middle Schools. This is my fourth year working for the Caldwell County School System. I have been in practice 25 years having both medical SLP and educational SLP experience. Prior to working in the schools I worked primarily as a clinical therapist for home health and nursing homes. I continue to work PRN for skilled nursing facilities.  My husband and I have three children, ranging in age from 12 to 20. I enjoy working with the all of the staff and students at GES and GMS. 

The caseload between GES and GMS is large. I am fortunate to have a caring, capable, trust-worthy assistant working with me. Mrs. Amanda Olive is my Speech-Language Pathology Assistant. Amanda obtained her Associates degree from Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute. This is her 2nd year working in the CCS system but she has 8 years experience as an assistant. She worked in the Catawba County School System and continues to provide home health services through Appalachian Speech Pathology Associates. Amanda has two children ages 15 and 17.
