WELCOME TO MS. CLARK’S WEBPAGE!

My name is Christa Clark and I am the Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) at North Euless Elementary. This is my fifth year as part of the HEB ISD and North Euless Family. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Northwestern University in 2010 and my Master’s Degree in Communication Disorders from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2012. I love working with children and helping them be as successful as possible!

If you are concerned your child may be displaying one or more of these disorders, and it is negatively impacting their performance in the classroom, please feel free to contact me here at school or by e-mail (christaclark@hebisd.edu).
