School Psychologist, Counselor & Leraning Support Specialist
Hi! I’m Yasmine and I have worked as a School Psychologist for many years with the Department of Defense, in Germany, Turkei, and Japan. In addition, I have worked with the Navajo People in New Mexico, as well as on-site and virtual school districts throughout the U.S. Support services in all of these settings included close intervention and support to students, families, and administration through assessment, counseling, behavioral intervention, IEP team and 504 collaboration, interacting with community providers, and more. My experience has ranged from Kindergarten to 12th grade, within the school settings.
Joy and laughter are significant parts of my world. Communication and resolution are always easier when team members approach the resolution table with authentic positivity and a willingness to hear all members.
Creating a level playing field is essential to empowering students to succeed, wherever the need; academically, socially, or emotionally. I have a passion for emotional wellness, family and community connectedness, and brighter futures through empowerment.
Finally, in addition to the above, my professional roles have included working as a Registered Nurse, as well as Special Education Teacher (Learning Disabilities and Emotional Difficulties). These roles have enabled me to have a broader, more effective view of the world as seen through the eyes of struggling students, families, and educators.
I am a first generation American with close family in Mannheim, Frankfurt, and France.
I speak German on a B1 level, beginning French, and of course, English!
Walk into the day!
