School Psychology Awareness Week
During the week of November 9-13, 2020, schools throughout the country celebrated National School Psychology Week (NSPW) to highlight the important work school psychologists and other educators do to help all students thrive.
This year's theme was "The Power of Possibility." The word "possibility" implies hope, growth, resilience and renewal. Possibility suggests that even something as small as a seed can grow into something magnificent. The word "power" implies that things can and will happen. When we focus on what is possible, we have hope that students will grow, thrive and bloom. (National Association of School Psychologists, 2020)

Who Are School Psychologists?
School Psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. They collaborate with educators, parents, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments for all students that strengthen connections between home and school. School Psychologists are highly trained in both psychology and education. They must complete a minimum of a post-Master's degree program that includes a year-long internship and emphasizes preparation in mental health, child development, school organization, learning styles and processes, behavior, motivation, and effective teaching. School Psychologists must be certified and/or licensed by the state in which they work. (Cited from the National Association of School Psychologists, 2008).
