Mrs. Eleanor Murphy

Hello! I have been practicing as a speech-language pathologist since 2015, after a career change from being a K-12 Japanese world language teacher in Chicago. Prior to that I lived and worked in Japan for three years as an Assistant Language Instructor and International Programs Coordinator for English-Teaching Programs in Saitama Prefecture, just north of Tokyo. This is my sixth year working at Hillcrest Elementary School with students who have speech and language disorders.
