November 11-15th is School Psychology Awareness Week. This year’s theme is “Find Your Focus”. The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) notes that “this year’s theme can have a variety of meanings such as paying attention, being able to see an idea more clearly, identifying an area of interest, or being persistent and determined in one’s effort.” NASP indicates that school psychologists may also find their focus by honing their leadership skills, helping improve school climate, advocating for systems-level change or enhancing a specific area of their practice.
School Psychology Awareness Week recently was recognized by Ohio’s Governor DeWine and Lieutenant Governor Husted to express appreciation for the many contributions made by school psychologists.
Here are some of the amazing school psychologists serving the school districts of Warren County who seek to find their focus every day in the services that they provide to the staff, students and families with whom they support.
