Yeah, no time to even finish that title. It’s GO TIME, people. Professional development done (bleh–trust falls!), kiddies back in school, and the school psychologist’s to-do list is having baby to-do lists at an exponential rate. *

SO, while I haven’t the time to craft a meaningful blog post, I do have time to give away free stuff that will help you survive and thrive in the new school year!

Who wants a copy of The School Psychologist’s Survival Guide?

Just post a comment here or on Facey Face with one back-to-school survival tip for fellow school psychologists and I’ll enter you in a drawing to win the book, using a random number generator. And then I’ll try to find time to drag an infant and a toddler to the post office and send it to the winner. That’s how much y’all mean to me.

Happy New School Year!

*Not to mention the mama school psychs out there who are also trying to raise small humans of your own. Your to-do list is probably insane, especially if you are trying to keep up with Pinterest moms who make adorbs “First Day of School” chalkboard signs with handcrafted wood borders they whittled themselves and bento boxes of lunch food that look like woodland animals with carrot whiskers and whatnot.

  1. Thanks for blogging!
    My survival tip is to make friends with all the office staff (secretaries, ED's if you have them, maintenance men, etc.) they can make your life so much easier!

  2. As a school psych starting in a new district, its all about rapport building! Try not to get carried away or make any major changes until people get to know you a little bit and feel comfortable with you working with their students and their children. Hopefully I can take my own advice!

  3. Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed I try to remember that "dreams don't work unless you do!" This quick reminder puts me back on track and motivated towards my ultimate goal of being a school psych and changing lives!

    Excited for my second year of graduate school and practicum!

  4. I'm currently a Junior in college and have started to become interested in becoming a school psychologist! WOOO on books! :) I'd love to learn more about the profession as much as possible!

  5. If you're starting at a new school send out a greeting/introduction note to all staff in their mailboxes. Attach a small piece of chocolate! They'll hopefully remember the chocolate when you need to get those rating scales back ASAP!
