Krista Halseth, MA, CCC-SLP
Began at Teachwell:
Why did you choose this field?
Initially I choose speech therapy because I wanted to do something in education or the health care field. I am so happy I did because I've had the opportunity to work in both of these settings as a speech-language pathologist.
What did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I thought I would go into business until I took a business class my freshman year in college.
What or who most inspires you?
My grandpa inspires me. He is the happiest and friendliest guy you will ever meet.
I love that Teachwell strives to help children be the best version of themselves. I feel blessed to work with an amazing team of professionals.
What are you proudest of?
My family. I am thankful to have my kids and husband by my side each day.
How do you hope to make a difference?
I hope to help my students improve their speech and overall communication skills and have fun along the way.
What lessons has your work life taught you?
I have learned that when my students have to work hard for something, it is such a sweet blessing to witness progress.
What is your background experience – degrees, experience, skills?
I received my undergraduate degree in Communication Disorders and my Masters Degree in Speech Language Pathology from the University of South Dakota. I have worked in the hospital setting, the South Dakota School for the Deaf, and the school setting. It has been fun to experience my career working with a wide variety of clients/students.

love to be at the lake. It has been one of my favorite places since I was a little girl. My family and I spend as much time at the lake in the summer as we can.
