Being a school psychologist is a challenging yet rewarding profession that requires immense dedication and compassion. School psychologists play a crucial role in supporting students’ mental health, academic success, and overall well-being. As a School Psych, YOU are the guiding lights that help students navigate through their darkest moments, providing a sense of calm and clarity amidst the chaos.

However, the responsibilities and stresses of the job can take a toll on their own well-being. In this quick post, I will share a collection of motivational quotes to help YOU, School Psychologists, feel better about your day, week, or even entire School Year! I’ve been there. From Advocates and disgruntled parents, to Interns who brown nosed my principal and tried to make me look bad. I’ve had rough years. I’ve also had perfectly smooth sailing years, so I know they are possible. I just wanted to take a moment to help remind YOU of the significance of your work and offering inspiration to stay motivated, even during the most challenging times.
