My name is Patte Smudde.  I obtained my master's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and I have been a speech-language pathologist for 24 years!  I have two daughters: Rachel is a graduate student at the University of Georgia and Sarah is a student at the University of North Georgia.  I enjoy helping all of my students to better access the curriculum.

I am one of the Speech-Language Pathologists here at Sawnee Elementary, working primarily with pre-k, first and second grade. This is my third year working in Forsyth County. I previously worked in Gwinnett County for 11 years, upon graduating with my bachelors degree from The University of Georgia and my masters degree from The University of Memphis. I just celebrated my tenth wedding anniversary and have two wonderful daughters, Addison (2nd grade) and Mackenzie (kindergarten). I am looking forward to another wonderful year working with your children!

I’m one of 4 wonderful Speech-Language Pathologists here at Sawnee and work mainly with Pre-k and Kindergarten students.  This is my 7th year working in this profession.  I attended the University of West Georgia for my bachelor’s and master’s degree in Speech. I grew up in Venice, FL and moved to Georgia when I was 13. My adorable (and very spoiled) dog, Tripp, and I currently live in Alpharetta. I look forward to meeting all my new students and to having a successful year!
