School Psychologist of the Year Award
Congratulations to Dr. Pamela Agan-Smith, PsyD who has been named 2015 School Psychologist of the Year by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). NASP established the award in 1990 to recognize individual school psychologists who have demonstrated exemplary dedication and effectiveness in improving the well-being of children, families and schools, and in advancing the profession of school psychology.
Dr. Pam has been a school psychologist at Greenville for 31 years. She earned her Associate of Science degree at Corning Community College, her Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Binghamton University and her Master of Science and Doctor of Psychology degrees at the University at Albany. When she began practicing at GCSD, Dr. Pam was the district’s only school psychologist. She became a fervent advocate for students with disabilities, and within her first 3 years, helped develop three new special education programs.
As a leader and innovator, Dr. Pam has decisively and positively impacted the health, well-being, and academic achievement of her students. According to NASP President Stephen E. Brock (pictured on the left), Dr. Agan-Smith “exemplifies services in the areas of system change, prevention, and intervention, more effective instruction, and improving the mental health of students.” Her colleagues at Greenville describe her as passionate in her work, with a constant warmth and sense of humor. They appreciate her down-to-earth, solution-focused perspective, nothing that “she thinks like a scientist but always works from her heart.” Read more
