As a School Psychologist, my goal is to have all students grow and thrive at all levels of learning and
development to promote personal achievement, growth, and resilience, as
well as a sense of connectedness and well-being. Children learn and grow by tapping into their natural abilities, taking on new challenges, and developing new skills, with the proper guidance and support. The learning environment is the ideal setting to help students build on their strengths and understand how striving leads to growth, both of which are critical to thriving. Facilitating the strive-grow-thrive cycle is essential to promoting competency, academic achievement, social–emotional wellness, and resilience, and it is entirely in keeping with the mission and purpose of schools.
