What do you like most about your job?
I love the fact that every day as a School Psychologist is different and that there are so many facets to my job. I get to see and do so much with various community members. There’s always so much to do, whether it’s counseling students, working in classrooms alongside teachers, supporting our families, or working with administration to meet our student’s needs.
All of my work with staff and parents directly impacts our kids, and I enjoy seeing that work make a positive change in our student’s life.
What do you most look forward to about teaching in Monroe this fall?
The community! I am so excited to become a part of MPS and get to know everyone. Orientation already gave us a good idea of what that’s going to feel like. That sense of community and connectedness is hard to achieve. I can already tell it runs deep in MPS.
