EB Scripps, Gage School Psychologist Honored

Jessica Coleman, school psychologist at Ellen Browning Scripps and Gage elementary schools, has been named Outstanding School Psychologist Region VII by the California Association of School Psychologists.

Jessica Coleman Coleman was saluted for her special education law, behavioral supports, interventions, consultation and collaboration and disability specific needs. The organization also noted that teachers are frequently in consultation and collaboration with her; seek her guidance; and use her as a constant, vigilant resource.

The California Association of School Psychologists recognizes the outstanding work of school psychologists through the Nadine M. Lambert Outstanding School Psychologist award. Only practicing school psychologists providing direct services to students, teachers, parents or community agencies are eligible for the award.

Coleman received her award Nov. 8 at the association's convention.
