Ms. Basovsky

My name is Courtney Basovsky. This is my 3rd year at Pawtucketville as a Speech Language Pathologist. My favorite part of being a speech language pathologist is watching my students gain confidence as they become the best communicators they can be! I love seeing my students master a sound or use a new technique to answer questions. In my free time, I enjoy the beach, walking, reading, and hanging out with my family.
