Check out my 5-minute clip on CBS58 in Milwaukee where I share 3 tips for parents to help reduce their stress (their own stress and their children’s stress!).
On #blackouttuesday, I went silent on social media and posted a black square on all my channels. I wanted to amplify Black voices and show solidarity. I listened. I learned. And I reflected on my role in anti-racism as a mom, a school psychologist, and an online voice for school psychologists. A few days later, my town had a Black Lives Matter protest and I was inspired by the turnout and strong voices for change.

I recently had an interesting experience with a student that made me pause and reflect on the best way to talk to kids and families about what a learning disability is.
