About

Hi, I’m Jenny!

I have always loved working with newer school psychologists, interns, and fieldwork students. I have been providing informal and formal mentoring over the last 20+ years as well as providing some teaching at a university that offered a school psychology program. I am passionate about the field of school psychology. I know that the work can be difficult at times, but so very rewarding! That is one of the reasons why I decided to create this website and provide these resources. I want you to succeed in this field and am so happy to provide some support, if you need it!

A bit about my background…I obtained by school psychology credential in 1999 and worked for 13 years in a school district before becoming an administrator. After three years in administration, I realized how much I missed the field of school psychology and decided to become a consultant. Now, I provide in-person and online trainings; I also contract with school districts to provide professional development and assessment support. Additionally, I complete assessments for students in the private practice setting and help others start-up their private practices.

During my years as a school psychologist, I obtained my post-graduate school neuropsychology certificate and also provided numerous trainings on the topic of Response to Instruction and Intervention (RtI²) and Multi-Tier System of Supports (MTSS).

Hi, I’m Sarah!

 

As a newer school psychologist, I am always on the lookout for quality resources that reference evidence-based best practices.  So often when I start researching, I end up going down a rabbit hole into the great digital unknown and spending way too much time evaluating the quality of the resource I have discovered.  That is why when I learned about The Newer School Psychologist and the opportunity to be a part of it, I had to join! 

I began my career in education in 2002 as a 4th-grade teacher.  I absolutely love working with students and seeing them grow. After taking a few years off to be with my own babies, I went back to school to earn my masters and specialist degrees in School Psychology.  This field combines my passion for education and desire to make significant changes in students’ lives outside of the general education classroom. I am in my third year working in a middle school at a great district in upstate South Carolina.  I have fabulous colleagues and supportive administration, so I feel quite fortunate to have landed here for this chapter of my career.
