Hi! I am Susan Smoots, your School Psychologist serving Evergreen Middle School.
    IMPORTANT UPDATES: Currently, all evaluation feedback meetings will be held virtually through Zoom.  Some testing will be completed online, some in person, depending upon the tests we chose to administer. I will be in contact with you by phone or email to schedule testing and meetings. Please contact me if you have questions about this process.
    Here is a helpful article from The Gottman Institute about returning to school in this online environment: The Digital Age: Back to School

     What is a School Psychologist? 
    School psychologists have specialized training in both psychology and education. They use their training and skills to team with educators, parents, and other mental health professionals to ensure that every child learns in a safe, healthy and supportive environment. School psychologists understand school systems, effective teaching and successful learning. Today’s children face more challenges than ever before. School psychologists can provide solutions for tomorrow’s problems through thoughtful and positive actions today.
    I work specifically with kids with special learning needs. These are students who need or already have Individualized Education Plans (IEPs.) However, I am available to all of our students to work on friendship, family or homework issues, individually or in groups.
