I am a Speech-Language Pathologist with more than 30 years experience.

I have learned so much from my favorite teachers - children and their caregivers. I am indebted to them and thankful that so many have shared their journey with me.

comment What size schoolbag is good for a first-grader?
@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun In our schools, shouldered bags are hung over the back of desks or chairs. Wheeled types cannot be but require a space in the room for storage. This has created tripping hazards/limited space in the classrooms. They also take up valuable space in the hallways. Imagine 400 of these pulled in the halls at the same time, this requires significantly more space than a backpack. Therefore, our local schools have banned them.
