National School Psychology Week

National School Psychology Week takes place from Nov. 8-12. 

School psychologists work with parents and educators to help ensure children have the learning support they need.  They are trained to help students succeed academically, socially and emotionally by addressing issues such as learning problems, behavior and discipline problems, social skills, mental health issues, problem solving, school safety, crisis prevention and intervention. 

Houston County Board of Education (HCBOE) school psychologists are dedicated to promoting academic and personal success for their students. The HCBOE thanks its 11 school psychologists: Stephani Adams, Leslie Allen, Jim Elkins, Ellen Tanner, Chris Wellman, Margaret Humphreys, Jay Jimerson, Amy Brett, Kristen Peaster, Cory Smith, and Amy Smith.

The U.S. Surgeon General estimates that one in every five children and adolescents will experience a significant mental health problem during their school years.  Challenges that can affect learning and behavior include: stress and anxiety, bullying, family or friend problems, rejection and loneliness, disabilities and depression.
