SLU PT Clinical Site Spotlight – Francis Howell School District, St. Charles Missouri
By Ian McDonnell (Class of 2022)
Working for Francis Howell School District was a great experience! I enjoyed each day working with a wide variety of kids with different pediatric diagnoses. I learned many things about how to incorporate PT into the school setting. I learned how to meet kids where they were at, and how to get creative with therapy sessions to keep kids engaged.
I am very lucky to have learned from my clinical instructors and SLU PT alumni, Ann Eggering and Theresa Winkler, and I am thankful for their extensive knowledge in this setting. I am grateful for all that I learned on this rotation, and I appreciate their willingness to help me learn and grow as a student PT! Thank you for helping to realize my potential in working with this patient population!
