Hello Valentine Community! I am Breanna McGuire and I am your new School Psychologist.
I recently moved from Chicago, IL and am looking forward to taking in all that Southern California has to offer. A little about me personally:
- I am a fan of the Harry Potter series and will gladly discuss the books/movies with fans of any age. I even went as far as to name my dog Harry.
- I am also a huge fan of the Chicago Cubs!
- I love to travel. I have been to 12 countries and counting.
- I am so excited to be working in the San Marino community and look forward to the opportunity to get to know everyone better, so please feel free to approach me to discuss anything.
Education & Experience
I completed my undergraduate work with a Bachelor's in Psychology from Illinois State University. During that time, I worked as a Clinical Services Intern at a Residential Treatment center, helping children with severe Emotional and Behavioral concerns. After graduating, I attended National Louis University and received a Master's in Education (M. Ed.), as well as a Specialist Degree in Education (Ed. S.). I am certified in the states of California and Illinois as well as having received a National Certification from the National Association of School Psychologists (NCSP from NASP). I have experience working with children across multiple settings and am excited to bring my knowledge and experience to Valentine, as well as to continue to learn from the students.
It is my primary objective that each student feels a sense of accomplishment from all that they have learned and achieved within the school year. Please consider me a part of the school program and let me know how I can be of service. I would be happy to listen to your suggestions and ideas on ways to work together.
