Speech Services


Welcome to speech at Burroughs Community School, room 216. 


My name is Joan Johnson and I am the Speech/Language Pathologist at Burroughs.  I work with students who have problems with articulation, language, stuttering, and voice.    I have a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN.  After working in the business world for a few years, I earned my master's degree in Communication Disorders from the University of MN.  This is my 28th year with the Minneapolis Public Schools and my 16th year at Burroughs.  I really enjoy getting to know my students and seeing their progress. 


When I am not at work I like biking, reading, playing piano, and playing all kinds of games.  My husband Gary and I have two children.  Ben is 25 and Maddie is 23.  We also have a fluffy, 16 year old Himalayan cat named Macaroon.


Please contact me if you have questions about speech services at Burroughs or about your child’s communication needs.  You can reach me by e-mail or telephone.
