It has been awhile since my last post, and I apologize for that…. but this school year has started with a bang and has just not slowed down at all!! This week is School Psychology Awareness Week and I wanted to address this just a little bit today in a way that will hopefully provide awareness of how grateful we are to everyone that we work with on a daily basis.
On behalf of all my school psychologist colleagues, I want to say THANK YOU!!! We could not do our jobs effectively without the collaboration, cooperation, and compassion of all of the teachers, administrators, faculty, and itinerant staff that we work with everyday!!! I know that sometimes it feels like we are facing overwhelming hurdles to meet students’ needs. It can be easy to lose sight of the impact the small things we each do really are making on students’ lives. While we cannot always recognize all of those staff members that make a difference, I wanted to take this opportunity to tell all of you thank you for what you do! I challenge you to also take a minute out of your busy day to let someone know how grateful you are to them for something they have done OR for something they have done for their students or others!
I also wanted to share a document that our National Association of School Psychologists just released in regard to Reinforcing Safe, Supportive and Positive School Environments for All Students. We strive to have safe environments for our children, and these are just a few more ways to manage it.
