My name is Teresa Fritsch I have been elected to be your new NASP Delegate. I am currently in my 27 year in the West Ada School District in Meridian, Idaho. In addition to working at one of our high schools, I work in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Magnet Programs we have in our district. I am a graduate of Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. where I earned my MA and Psy.S. degrees, with a specialty in deafness. My undergraduate degree is in Deaf Education from Illinois State University. I taught for two years before deciding to pursue my school psychology degree.
I will be attending my first Leadership Assembly at the NASP office in Washington, D.C. from September 12th through the 15th. NASP is currently in the midst of updating their four Standards. It should a very intriguing time. I plan on bringing back a wealth of updated information in time for our ISPA Annual Conference in October at JUMP in Boise. There is limited space for this year's conference so please be sure to sign up soon.
One goal I set for myself as the new NASP Delegate is to address the workforce shortage we have nationally and statewide. This year's School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW) is November 11th through the 15th and the theme this year is "Find Your Focus." I hope to provide you with materials and resources that you can use as we work to bolster the field of school psychology. I will be placing PowerPoint presentations on the website for you to access, so you can present at your high schools and undergraduate programs near you. Let's get the word out!!!
Enjoy the first months of a new school year! Take care of yourselves!
Pardon our dust! This website is under construction.
ISPA's all new look is coming soon.
