This week is School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW). At Splendora ISD, two full-time Licensed Specialists in School Psychology (LSSP) assess and serve the growing diversity of students and community. These individuals are Michelle Reynolds, M.A., LSSP and Monica Stiles, M.A., LSSP. In addition, the Director of Special Services Jennifer Stewart is also an LSSP and is always ready and willing to provide support to others.
This year’s School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW) theme is “Unlock Potential. Find Your Password!” A password is a personal key for unlocking any number of areas of potential in our lives. Splendora ISD LSSPs have set a goal to connect with how modern youth and adults unlock things (e.g. gaming, phones, devices, codes, etc.) and to highlight how thinking about specific skills, assets, and/or characteristics as “passwords” can lead to positive growth.
LSSPs are particularly skilled at assisting students, staff, and families in unlocking the resources, proactive and preventative skills, and positive connections necessary to unlock the full potential of students so that they may thrive in school and life.
“Please take time to reach out or speak with these individuals about ways they can assist you in identifying passwords to unlock student potential,” said Director Stewart.
