It’s Official: I’m Certifiable

As a school psychologist, that is! I got my PRAXIS II results back last week, and I did well enough that I can apply for certification in all 50 states, as well as NCSP (national certification). All that’s left is to kill off this internship and 3 more courses, and I’m ready to go.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, it looks like by this time next year, I’ll be in ur schoolz, psychologizin’ ur students (sorry, had to beat the last breath out of the lolcats theme from the last post. If you don’t get it, consider yourself blessed).

It’s been about as hectic as I’d expected it to be this first week of school – kids started last Wednesday, and we have off this Thursday for Rosh Hashanah. I’d like to post my first week reflections before then, as well as comment on the impending brouhaha between the APA and NASP regarding who should be allowed to call themselves “psychologists”, but if I don’t, L’shana tovah, and I’ll definitely post at the weekend.

PS: I will never, ever get tired of hearing, “I wuv you, Daddy!”. I’m going to make him say it when he’s 40, and just you see if I don’t.

PPS: Major apologies if anyone was looking to reference any of my Top Ten tracks from last post – edublogs permitting, I will post by this Sunday evening at the very latest.


  • Congratulations, Damian… I’m sure you’ll psychologize them really good.

  • A big congratulations on the eve on the Jewish New Year!

  • add to the congrats, must feel nice to have that big step done! looking forward to hearing more of your thoughts!
