27: Amanda Myers & Adolescent School Psychology
Amanda Myers &
Adolescent School Psychology
WELCOME BACK FOR SEASON TWO OF THE EDUPUNX PODCAST!
We are back from vacation and ready to deliver more conversations with punk educators across the country! This week, Katy Hamm interviews their best friend and Skister (explained in the interview), Amanda Myers, who is a school psychologist in Wisconsin.
These two have known each other for a very long time and during our stay at Amanda's place in Madison, Katy pulled out the microphone they had a very chill chat about a variety of topics - from Amanda being fluent in Spanish and working with English Language Learners, to being a tattooed educator in the conservative Midwest, to the ins and outs of being a school psychologist, as well as what it looks like to come out as a queer woman a little later in life! Even after having a kid! Katy and Amanda get into what being an educator can teach us about parenting as well!
