Hello My Name Is...
Mrs. Tracy Bond
This is my first year at Brindlee Mountain, but I have been a speech-language pathologist for 24 years in various settings. I have been in the educational setting for 9 of those years. I am enjoying getting to know and working with the children at Brindlee Mountain. I cover all four BM schools, but the majority of my time is spent at BMPS. Although my schedule changes often due to student meetings, my typical schedule is:
Monday - BMPS
Tuesday - BMPS
Wednesday - BMPS and BMES
Thursday - BMPS
Friday - BMPS and BMMS
I graduated from Arab High in 1988 and then received my undergraduate degree from the University of South Alabama in 1991 in Speech and Hearing Science. From there, I attended University of TN-Knoxville (Go Vols!) and received my master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology in 1992. I am currently pursuing an Education Specialist degree in Instructional Technology from the University of West Georgia. As an SLP, I have worked with all ages. My clients have ranged from 9 months to 104. I have experience in the school system, rehabilitation hospital (inpatient and outpatient), nursing home, telepractice, supervision, and was a Director of the Alabama A&M University Speech and Hearing Clinic and rehab director of a nursing home.
I am married to Jonathan Bond and we have three girls that keep us on our toes. Erika is 18. She does online high school while taking classes at the University of Alabama. She plans to attend JSU in the fall and has been accepted through early admission to JSU's nursing program. Emma Kate is 14 and is in the 8th grade. While she was a soccer player, she has recently given up soccer for her love of music. She plays the flute in the band. My youngest daughter, Mollie, is 11 and in the 5th grade. She is an avid soccer player and plays on a local club team.
I look forward to a great 2015-2016 academic year. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.
