President's Message

Dear Colleagues,

      I can’t believe it’s Fall 2015.  Hope you all had a joyous, yet restful summer break.  I am very honored to serve you again this 2015-2016 school year as SBASP President. 

     SBASP has been diligently working on finding ways to better support school psychologists, such as trainings on updated testing instruments and trainings on evidence-based practices in relevant resources needed to support our children.  In addition, SBASP is also brainstorming ways to uplift school psychologists, as we as a group tend to hyper-focus on servicing our students, their families, and staff, and get lost in the busy daily details of our profession.  Because we are key players in our children’s development and well-being, our excitement and joy for our job can be cultivated by the connections and support we provide to one another.  Therefore, I encourage you to reach out to SBASP and support our cause—to uplift and inspire school psychologists.

     Our Southwest SELPA has been graciously supportive and I would like to thank them on the behalf of SBASP.  Without their support, some of our trainings would not have been possible.

     I look forward to productive year and thank you for another opportunity to serve you.  May you all have a wonderful year!
