What do School Psychologists do? 

They "support students' ability to learn and teachers' ability to teach.  They apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally and emotionally." (NASP)

I am very happy to be here and am looking forward to getting to know the students, staff,  and parents of Seth Paine as well as District 95.
