Keri Sarver is working as an SLP at Grand Prairie ISD in Texas. She is an affiliate of Special Interest Group 16 and a Star Community Member.
Why does Keri participate in the ASHA Community?
The ASHA community is a significant part of my world on a daily basis. It is the first site I visit every morning. What a blessing to be able to have our field’s best and brightest no further away than my fingertips! The support available to us through the ASHA community is second to none. I, personally, have been so lucky to receive support and guidance from some of the most highly regarded members of our field through this community. I cannot imagine my day without it. I am especially grateful for SIG 16 and all the amazing members who so willingly and kindly respond to questions I pose. What an amazing group of people!
What is your best childhood memory?
I was 8 years old and we had just stepped off the plane in Hong Kong. I remember looking around at all these signs I couldn’t read and buildings touching the sky; I turned to my mother and said, “Mom! We’re home!” Hong Kong and Macau continue to be the home of my heart. I believe my upbringing, outside the USA, has contributed to the clinician I am today.
The best part of waking up?
The knowledge that I GET to go to work! I love my students, my school, my co-workers, and my CAREER!
What is one of my favorite quotes? I can never pick just one. These are my favorites:
“Here is my secret. It is very simple. It is only with the heart one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery (The Little Prince)
“All grown-ups were once children….but only few of them remember it.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery (The Little Prince)
If I could go anywhere on vacation, it would be: Disney World! I’m a big kid at heart and nothing makes me happier than walking through the front gates of the Magic Kingdom!
