Professional Biography

Mrs. Weltsch began her career as a speech-language pathologist for children preschool through 12th grade in several rural communities in the state of Alabama after obtaining her bachelor’s degree.  That experience led to graduate school as a non-traditional student followed by employment in the Geary County school district in Kansas.  There she provided services to caseloads of up to 80 children in grades preschool-5 with a variety of disorders across the scope of practice.  She also supervised paraprofessionals and several K-State CSD graduate students completing their school externships.  After several years of teaching Clinical Procedures, Language Development, Introduction to Phonetics, and Clinical Supervision as an adjunct instructor (in addition to her full-time job), she became a full time faculty member of Communication Sciences and Disorders at K-State in 2001.
