Hi! I am Susan Smoots, your School Psychologist serving Evergreen Middle School.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: If you have an evaluation feedback meeting scheduled with me, you will recieve information from our district about how we are holding meetings online / virtually. I will be in touch with you by phone and email as soon as I know more. My contact information is below. Thank you for your patience. I am already missing our kids. Take care :)
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.
