Hello all! My name is Angelina Serrano and I am the Speech Language Pathologist Assistant (SLPA) at San Tan Heights Elementary and San Tan Foothills High School. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and another in Speech and Hearing Science at Arizona State University. I am currently earning my Masters in Communication and Science Disorders at Northern Arizona University. Before I worked in the public school setting, I worked as an SLPA in both a clinical and home health setting. I enjoy working with toddlers, preschool, and school age children, and I believe in looking at each child as an individual and catering a therapy plan to fit that child's unique needs. I also encourage collaboration with other professionals, including occupational therapists, applied behavior therapists, reading specialists, and teachers to gain the most academic progress. This is my third year at San Tan Heights and I am looking forward to the upcoming year as a Hawk!

My name is Erin Jankus, and I am very excited to be starting my second year as the speech language pathologist at San Tan Heights and San Tan Foothills High School! I am originally from the Chicago area, but have lived in Arizona for almost 2 decades now so I’m pretty much a native and I love telling Midwesterners that it really is a dry heat (not at all like an oven set to 500 degrees). I got my undergrad degrees from Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana. Walking 30 minutes in the snow to get to class everyday made my move to Arizona a no brainer. I received my Masters Degree from NAU. Now, I live right here in San Tan Heights with my husband, my mischievous, adorable son, my loyal pup and my giant desert tortoise. I have been a speech language pathologist for nearly 18 years, and I have worked in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, schools and doing home health. I love kids and like to think that you’re never too old to play. My goal is to make speech therapy fun, challenging and useful. Kids know that they are loved when they walk through these doors. I can’t wait for another year of laughing, learning and growing!
