Croft Named Fayette County Schools Psychologist of the Year

The Fayette County Association of School Psychologists has selected Stacy Croft as Fayette County Schools Psychologist of the Year.

Each year the local association selects a member who has demonstrated exemplary job performance, earning the respect of fellow workers, students and parents. The award not only recognizes persons who have made outstanding contributions to school psychology but it also serves as a vehicle for increasing public awareness of the profession.

School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially and emotionally. They collaborate with educators, parents and other professionals to create safe, healthy and supportive learning environments for all students that strengthen connections between home and school.

School psychologists are highly trained in both psychology and education. They must complete a minimum of a post-Master’s degree program that includes a year-long internship and emphasizes preparation in mental health, child development, school organization, learning styles and processes, behavior, motivation and effective teaching.

Fayette’s school psychologists are certified by the state of Georgia (Georgia Professional Standards Board) with several current staff members holding national certification from the National School Psychology Certification Board.
