Welcome to the School Psychologist's page!
I have been the School Psychologist for Hillside for over 20 years. I am involved with assessment at Hillside, both of individual students and with school-wide benchmark assessment. Hillside currently uses FastBridge for benchmarking ELA and Math skills three times a year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the system, or about your student's scores.
