Amanda Nathanson

Alum Comes Back to Hawthorn

It’s always great to see Hawthorn alums doing awesome things in their lives and careers. One alumna, Ms. Amanda Nathanson, has come full circle. She is back at Hawthorn as a graduate student intern for speech-language pathology. Working with Speech Therapist Ms. Lasare at Elementary North, she provided a Zoom lesson that focused on listening comprehension, social skills and problem solving. 

 “I’ve always wanted to work with kids and be in a helping profession,” said Ms. Nathanson.  

Hawthorn has begun to host more graduate students in their educational placements prior to graduation. “It is quite beneficial for both the elementary students and the graduate students to have this experience,” said Ms. Lasare, who hosted another Hawthorn alum prior to Ms. Nathanson.
