A Very Long Minute

One Very Long Minute

DIBELS…. The first test. One of many curriculum based measurements we as first years will learn to administer this year. There is a test booklet, a timer, a student page, specific markings to be made while scoring, and a child who does not have all the right answers. While DIBELS is not actually rocket science, for many of us it is the first time we will be interacting with a child in a very meaningful way. Our ability to provide this measurement will help teachers decide whether or not an intervention may be necessary to help the child to develop solid reading skills.

So, no pressure.

I am a 28-year-old-School-Psychology-CAGS/PsyD-student. Whew, what a mouthful. Journey and Styx rock my world, and some hardcore volleyball makes it go round n' round. I have spend the past six years working at a school/residential facility for children with emotional and behavioral disorders, and when I tried to quit in order to begin grad school, it just didn't take- I continue to pick up shifts every week so I can see my kids. I am a new homeowner about 40 minutes outside of Boston (another favorite band) with my husband and my 3 year old (rescued) mutt, Maisy. I am going to do my best to invite you inside my thoughts as I continue my grad school career as a simultaneously juggle my full time internship, CAGS classes and begin my journey into the PsyD- enter at your own risk!
