Celebrating School Psychologist Sarai G.
At Cross Country Education, we’re honored to work with the best of the best from across the nation as they strive to improve kids' lives every day! This time, we’re spotlighting bilingual school psychologist Sarai G. Here, Sarai shares why she decided to become a school psychologist, what she enjoys most about working with the Cross Country Education team and schools, and what advice she has for school psychologists embarking on their careers.
Why did you become a bilingual school psychologist?
I became a bilingual school psychologist to help make a difference in the lives of all students. I have worked with students from many different backgrounds, even countries, and to be able to make a connection with them as well as help them figure out why they are struggling to learn the academic materials is an indescribable feeling. I’m not a bilingual school psychologist to receive recognition; the only recognition that I believe is important is knowing that the students that I have assessed and/or provided services to are making progress in their overall well-being.
What do you like about Cross Country Education?
What I like about Cross Country Education is the flexibility. I am a single mother of 3 so flexibility is huge. Being able to create my own schedule and still be present in my children’s day to day activities means so much to me.
What have you liked about your experience working as a bilingual school psychologist at CCE schools?
I have worked for Cross Country Education (formerly Mediscan Inc and DirectEd Services) for over 7 years. Throughout the years, I have worked with many different school sites ranging from elementary to high school. What I like most about my experience in working at CCE schools is the diversity of the students that I get to work with.
What kind of advice would you give to someone starting out in your field as a school psychologist?
The advice that I would give to someone starting out in my field would be to be organized and have a good time management system!
Thanks for all you do to help students thrive, Sarai!
