CVUSD School Psychologist Katie Aeschleman Receives Honor from Statewide Association
Katie Aeschleman, a school psychologist in the Conejo Valley Unified School District, received the Nadine M. Lambert Outstanding School Psychologist Award for her contributions to the profession by the California Association of School Psychologists (CASP) at its recent annual convention in Orange County.
Katie has been a school psychologist for CVUSD for the last 14.5 years. Prior to becoming a school psychologist, Katie taught general and special education for 23 years.
Katie holds a PPS credential in School Psychology, a Multiple Subject teaching credential, and a Specialist Instruction credential in special education – and she also studied neuropsychology and traumatic brain injury allowing her to conduct assessments and provide instruction and services to individuals with a primary disability of TBI.
“I don’t do my job expecting any recognition or awards, so it was both a big surprise and a very nice gesture to receive this recognition,” said Katie. “I love what I do, it is such an honor and so rewarding to work with the dedicated people I do and to keep finding new ways to help the kids and families we serve.”
The Nadine M. Lambert Outstanding School Psychologist Award recognizes the contributions school psychologists have made to the schools, students and profession, and is awarded on a regional basis. Katie was recognized as the Outstanding School Psychologist for the Central Coast Area region.
The announcement of the award comes in time for California School Psychology Week held on Nov. 13-17, which highlights the work of school psychologists via a variety of activities in districts statewide.
The California Association of School Psychologists, with over 1,800 members, is the largest state school psychologists association in the country. It provides continuing education, resource and referral and advocacy to school psychologists throughout the state. Formed in the early 1950s, the association works to ensure safe learning environments for all K-12 students.
