What makes you an interesting teacher?

I believe that students learn more from trial and error than by being told exactly what to do and how to do it. I work hard to take the positive perspective. As Thomas Troward was quoted to say, "the floating of things is not determined by the sinking of things" - we need to notice more often what "is" versus what "isn't."

David Krupke, MA, CCC-SLP

Dave Krupke worked for 41 years at the Mississippi Bend AEA in public school settings, serving regular and special education pre-school through high school populations. While at the AEA, he also worked in 0-3 services and as a member of a multi-disciplinary team doing play-based assessments. His clinical supervision experience includes 10 years at Augustana College in summer residential and community-based speech and language programs, and seven years at the University of Iowa Summer Residence Program and Summer Intensive Apraxia Programs.

Mr. Krupke is a Nationally Certified Resource Specialist and Trainer for See the Sound/Visual Phonics, a multi-sensory augmentative strategy utilized by speech-language pathologists, regular and special educators, ELL, and DHH educators. He has had several articles related to speech-language pathology published in national publications. He joined the Master of Speech-Language Pathology Program faculty in 2010.

Mr. Krupke's areas of interest include early literacy, articulation and phonology, language-learning, voice, and accent reduction. His primary responsibility is as a clinical supervisor in the Rite Care Clinic and in community-based preschools. He enjoys spending time with his adult children and grandchildren, singing, reading, writing, biking, golfing, walking, and canoeing.

He advises student research and actively engages in research, conducting studies on See the Sound-Visual Phonics in the areas of early literacy, therapeutic applications for speech-language, professional development efficacy and follow-up, and feedback efficacy.
