Hello! I am the Hillside School Psychologist primarily for grades K-1 and the Communication Classes. I am here as a resource for Hillside families who have concerns about the social/emotional and/or academic progress of their children. I welcome parent contact through telephone and email.
I am a licensed psychologist as well as a certified school psychologist, with a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. I have been a school psychologist at Hillside since 2008, in a career which has included the Yonkers, Eastchester, and White Plains School Districts as a school psychologist and CPSE Chairperson. I feel very fortunate to be part of the Hastings community. I am proud to be part of an educational community where the social/emotional needs of our students take priority.
I work with students individually and in social skills groups. My students include those with counseling IEP services, as well as children without CSE classification. School initiatives with which I am involved include Autism Awareness Day, Lunch Buddies, Lunch meetings for new students, and Good Touches/Bad Touches. I am a member of the PST building level Problem Solving Team, and the Kindergarten screening team.
I very much look forward to meeting my continuing and new students each September, and encourage you to contact me if I can be of assistance, in any way, in helping your child have a successful Hillside experience.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
