Miss Hana Blair
It's wonderful to be working at Woodlawn and Deerfield, two schools full of incredible people! For my education, I graduated from the University of Kansas in 2017 with a degree in psychology, applied behavioral science, and social and behavioral statistical methods. My master's and educational specialist degrees for school psychology were earned at Emporia State University shortly after.
School psychologists perform many functions, but my prime goal is to help students receive a comprehensive education while fostering caring relationships between staff and students, regardless of their cultural or neurological background. I also strive to create targeted and effective interventions through robust special education evaluations. School psychologists also have the honor of:
- Consulting with teachers and families about mental health, behavior, and learning
- Providing mental health, behavior, and academic support
- Aiding with crisis prevention and response
- Fostering school-wide data-based decision making
- Creating safe and supportive learning environments
Besides my educational and professional pursuits, I love being a nerd with my partner, playing with synthesizers, doing yoga, and getting my cat to chase lasers.
If you need any assistance with the special education process or have any questions about mental health, please feel free to contact me by phone or email. Take care!
