I am happy to be back this year working at Lake Harriet. I wanted to share my schedule and role in the building so you know what I do and how to reach me.


My role this year will include:

●     Special Education assessment and consultation

●     Problem-Solving Team (Response To Intervention) intervention planning for students needing extra support

●     Positive Engagement Team to enhance school climate

●     Student Leadership/Council

●     Peer Mediation and Conflict Resolution

●     Consultation with staff and parents regarding student concerns

●     Short-term Counseling for students


I will be at Lake Harriet Upper on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Lower on Fridays. I work at 3 total sites, so email is the best way to reach me.

This next paragraph sums up the role of a School Psychologist, but please let me know if you’d like more information or have questions.

School psychologists are uniquely qualified members of school teams that 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. School psychologists partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community.

I wish you all a great school year!
