School Psychologist

What does a school psychologist do?
A school psychologist is a specially trained individual who supports students academically, socially and emotionally, emotionally and behaviorally. We partner with families, teachers, administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments. 

School Psychologists:

  • Improve academic achievement
  • Promote positive behavior and mental health
  • Aide in special education planning
  • Create safe and positive school environments
  • Strengthen family-school partnerships
  • Advocate for our student’s needs

At Little Britain I am involved in many building level and special education activities. Some of these include:

  • Special education testing for initial and re-evaluations
  • Chair the Section 504 committee
  • Leading RTI meetings and collaborating with teachers to provide interventions in the classroom
  • Organizing Food for Kids
  • Providing individual and group counseling for students with IEPs/504s and on the building level
  • Communicate with administration to ensure the needs of the students are being met
  • Collaborate with families to find outside providers and resources to meet the needs of the students

Danielle Mintz, MA NCSP - School Psychologist

Hello! I am excited for my first year with Little Britain Elementary School. Last year I worked at Taft and Round Hill Elementary School. This is my third year as a school psychologist and previously worked in the Adirondack region. I am excited to be back in the Hudson Valley where I grew up to support students. 

At Little Britain, I help identify different ways students learn through evaluations. I provide individual and group counseling to students to help them learn tools to be successful in the classroom. I am excited to be a part of the RTI team and consult with teachers for academic and behavioral concerns. I also have a Bitmoji Classroom where you can find newsletters and resources. Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns!
