Delegates serve as a connection between NASP and school psychologists practicing in diverse roles in their states. Delegates promote NASP’s professional positions and priority goals at the state level and utilize their understanding of state issues to guide NASP’s strategic direction.
Idaho State NASP Delegate: Teresa Fritsch
Hello Fellow School Psychologists!
I hope you are all well and staying safe during these uncharted times. Those of you who are NASP members know that my husband and I often refer to our school year like a baseball game (he’s in education as well). As you all know, we were all coming up on the 7th inning stretch (spring break) when things began to change so quickly. My father in-law told us that it was just a “rain delay,” and we’d be back at it before you know it, and sure enough we have been. I don’t know about you all, but it certainly has been an exhausting 8th inning!! Stay strong and reach out to colleagues and/or myself if you’d like to brainstorm particularly difficult situations. We’re in this together and need to make sure our masks are all on before we assist others (and yet another metaphor)!!
As you can see on the ISPA website, there are some exciting things happening! As the NASP Delegate for Idaho, I will keep you informed of what is happening with NASP on the NASP Delegate tab on this website, particularly if you are not a NASP member. As a NASP member, you receive monthly newsletters and the Communique as well as a plethora of opportunities for online classes and many resources/supports. NASP is seeking new membership right now so feel free to complete the membership information on the NASP website (https://www.nasponline.org/). If you sign up now, you will get 13 months of membership for the price of a year. Currently, you can make payments several different ways. Keep in mind that NASP’s annual conference will be in Salt Lake City, Utah in February 2021 and will provide a great opportunity to network and learn from colleagues on a variety of topics. I look forward to seeing many of you there!!
There are many exciting things happening with our state organization!! Keep checking the website for new information and events!
Take care and stay safe,
Teresa Stivers Fritsch, Psy.S., NCSP
