"The training at Roberts has equipped me with the necessary knowledge and experience to serve as an emphatic, open-minded, and competent multi-cultural school psychologist. The professors have provided me with great support through all situations, educationally and spiritually, and provided me with diverse opportunities for me to experience different school environments, including urban and suburban school settings."


Dr. Cheryl Repass

Professor of Psychology

"Throughout my 14 years as a school psychologist, I witnessed the vital and important role that school psychologists play in our schools.  Although my role as a practitioner has changed, I continue to draw on my background working with youth in crisis counseling, systems consultation, implementing student interventions, providing student level support for students with mental health and special needs, and monitoring student achievement."
