Nadia Magee

Nadia Magee is joining the Lincoln staff excited to work with high school students.

Q: What is your job?

A: I’m one of the two new Speech-Language Pathologists at Lincoln this year. I work with a wide variety of brilliant students on all things communication, writing, self-advocacy and executive functioning skills. I am on campus on Tuesdays and Fridays and can often be found in Ms. Edington’s classroom or in my office in the student center. The other days of the week I work at Jefferson High School.

Q: Where were you before joining Lincoln?

A: Last year, I worked with the speech-language pathologist at Grant High School for the entire school year while completing my graduate school internship through Portland State University Before that, I graduated with a degree in anthropology from UCLA and was a literacy interventionist, where I specialized in neurodivergent populations. 

Q: Why did you decide to come here?

A: After working with Ms. Barton, the former speech-language pathologist last year, I knew Lincoln High School was special and that the way I work with students would be a great match. I was so excited when I learned that I could join the team.

Q: What are your first impressions?

A:The students are awesome. The faculty is friendly and passionate, but there are so many stairs.

Q: What made you choose your job as your profession?

A: Speech-Language Pathology was ultimately where my personal interests aligned to, and I can spend my days with funny, creative people. High schoolers are some of the funniest funny and creative-est creative people I know.
