Life was not meant for school psychologists to spend their nights and weekends report writing. By working smarter not harder, you can find ways to get the same amount of work done in shorter amounts of time so you can get back to your personal life.
The problem: There is a shortage of school psychologists nation-wide and most school psychologist’s caseloads are out of control while there’s not much we can do about it. We can’t just not do the work. We can’t go on strike to say our caseloads are too overwhelming as that would also be an ethical violation. To add insult to injury, a lot of us are underpaid for the amazing work we do.
The current solution: Pray for interns? For many of us, we toil night in and night out writing reports. There are so many school psychologists going above and beyond in their jobs who are taking an enormous amount of work home for the greater good of the children they serve. We are truly a group of unsung heroes.
Alternative solution: Work smarter not harder. Use the free tutorials on this website that will help you get the same amount of work done in less time. Similar to your countless hours of contribution, my countless hours into these tutorials were meant for the greater good of the children you serve.
