What’s a Typical Day Look Like in the Life of a School Psychologist?

School psychologists, as most people probably assume, work directly with students, but they also consult and collaborate with teachers and parents.

They evaluate students for special education services, but also for mental health supports and referrals. They help build positive school climates where all students feel safe and welcome. They are an ally to parents, a calming support for students, and resource 

for teachers who are looking for creative ways to keep students interested in learning.

Every day is different, which means they have to expect the unexpected and switch gears at a moment’s notice. In other words, there is no such thing as a typical day for a school psychologist.

Join us for National School Psychology Week, Nov. 8-12 as we tip our hats to these consummate professionals in recognition of the many hats they wear and the invaluable support they offer families and schools.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
