“Welcome from the School Psychology Coordinator”
As School Psychology Coordinator, my position involves a balance of research, teaching, supervision, mentoring, and administrative duties. As an integral member of the CCSP faculty, I will co-evaluate student portfolio work in fulfillment of the CCTC PPS Credential, participate in the recruitment of masters and doctoral students to the school psychology emphasis, advise and mentor students, maintain an independent program of research, participate in presentations at state and national professional conferences in collaboration with faculty and students, and conduct additional professional activities to enhance the visibility and scholarly excellence of CCSP.
The School Psychology Coordinator position was developed to manage the credential program and provide exceptional supervision and mentorship to graduate students pursuing second-year (450 hours) and third-year (1200 hours) school psychology fieldwork experiences. Through activities designed to address fieldwork situations and training needs, my goal is to foster students’ communication skills, flexibility, effective interpersonal relations, initiative and dependability, ethical responsibility, and respect for human diversity. School psychologists trained through CCSP are consistently rated as extraordinary in preparation, training, knowledge, and professionalism. I am honored to join a faculty team committed to excellence as one of the top school psychology training programs in the country.
