I am a second year student in the School Psychology M.Ed./Ed.S. program. I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at James Madison University. I realized I wanted to work with children and adolescents after several volunteer experiences in undergrad and when I found out about School Psychology it sounded like a perfect fit!
So far, I have loved my experience at William and Mary! Everyone is very friendly and people in my cohort are always planning social and class-related outings. I also like that the classes have incorporated experiential activities that allow you to get involved in the school systems immediately. Also, coming from a mid-sized school to a small school is different, but I really like that the professors actually get the chance to know each individual student. When making my decision about where to attend grad school, I talked to a practicing School Psychologist who said “William and Mary is an exceptional school all around.”
