Who are you?
My name is Amanda Roesly, and currently, I am working as a School Psychology intern at a school district in South Jersey.
Who are school psychologists?
The role of a school psychologist varies by state, district, and even among schools in the same district. All school psychologists do evaluations to assist in determination of eligibility for special education services. While some professionals spend much of their time testing, we are well qualified to do so much more! Besides assessment, school psychologists are well-trained in and can provide counseling services, behavioral analytic services including assessment and intervention, professional development, program evaluation, instructional support and teacher consultation, crisis preparation and intervention, and so much more! If you want to know how your school psychologist can help you, reach out to them and ask!
Why school psychology?
As an aunt of eight, children have been an inescapable part of my life (and I wouldn’t change it for the world!) I have always had a strong passion for children, education, and also change. I enjoy problem solving and helping so a career finding a career in school psychology was a dream come true!
Where did you study?
In 2015, I received a masters degree in School Psychology with a Specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. In July 2018, I will receive my Education Specialist degree which will allow me certification in the field (yay!).
I LOVE resources! I love finding them, receiving them and sharing them. Please share with me your resources and I will credit you for them! Evidence-based preferred!
