A Little Bit About Me

Hi, I'm the School Psychologist for Hall Elementary and Franklin Middle Schools in North Minneapolis. This is my FIFTH year in MPS. I work with both the Mental Health teams and Special Education teams in both schools.

  • As a school psychologist, I work on special education evaluation processes and consultation
  • I grew up in Oregon, but I've lived in New Orleans and in Minneapolis since 1985
  • I graduated with my Doctorate of Psychology (Psy.D.) in School Psychology from Minnesota State University, Mankato
  • I am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP), and a past board member of the Minnesota School Psychologists Association
  • I have two grown daughters (one in college)
  • I am a school psychologist because I love collaborating with families, students, and other school staff to find out what a student needs and how all of us can help the student realize their "super" powers.
  • I can be reached through my email (marcia.sytsma@mpls.k12.mn.us)
