Mrs. Samantha Kostowicz
Hello! I have been a speech patholoist at Legacy Elementary since the doors opened. I LOVE working with children and facilitating their communciation needs. I have been a speech therapist in many different settings (schools, hospital, private practice, nursing home, home health) for the last 22 years, but I truly enjoy the flexibility and variety of students I am entrusted to work with in the Marion County School System.
I grew up in Ocala, have been married for 15 years and have 2 beautiful daughers and a fantastic dog named Dutch. I enjoy kayaking, photography, tennis, Netflix and podcasts.

During school closure due to covid-19, speech-language therapy will be provided as much as possible via the online platform Zoom. I will be contacting all families on my caseload by Friday April 3rd. If we have not made contact by that date, please reach out to me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (352) 462-3981. I understand that not all families will be able to access this platform, so we will work together to make a plan for best service delivery method during the distance learning interval. Zoom can be accessed by smartphone, tablet with wifi access, or a computer that has a webcam/ microphone. Once sessions are scheduled, I will send a link to "join a meeting" and the student/ parent can access the meeting session. I understand there will be many questions, feel free to reach out to me anytime. I will do my best to respond to all communication within 24 hours.
