As the Special Education Director for Humboldt County Office of Education (HCOE) in Eureka, CA,  I am writing to let you know of our full time vacancy for a school psychologist.  I have included a link to the job announcement below.  I was hoping  you might spread the word to graduates in your program who are looking for a position. Feel free to share my contact information with anyone who may have an interest.
 
 
At HCOE we have a team of school psychologists who support small rural school districts in the county. We work with  a dynamic, collaborative, multi-disciplinary team to serve the special education population throughout this rural region. Aside from Humboldt being a beautiful coastal area to live in, HCOE is a great organization where many of us have remained throughout our careers. With two psychologists retiring this year, we are excited to be building a new team.
 
Please note that our school psychologists work 194 days during a school year, 8 hours a day and some have coordinating duties; our range of compensation is listed as  Salary Schedule II in the link below. (The rate will increase by 1% during the 2017-18 school year.) The position also offers medical, dental and vision insurance benefits in addition to monthly contributions to the STRS state retirement system.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions. Thank you very much for your time. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Tess Ives

Teaching Positions, Yleana Leadership Academy
| March 31, 2017 | 2:08 pm | Sch. Psych., Teaching | Comments closed

The Yleana Leadership Academy is a residential summer academy which serves rising high school seniors in urban areas (Baltimore, Boston, North Shore of MA, NYC, and Philadelphia) and seeks to close the achievement gap through a three-week transformative intervention summer SAT experience.  We are part summer camp (on Colgate University’s campus in upstate NY), part intense SAT training using the Socratic method and grounded in asking the questions that help to cultivate higher order thinking skills, and part leadership academy:  We explore issues like race, class, power, income inequality, prisons, etc through our Issues curriculum, an open-forum discussion setting where we question these issues through readings by people like James Baldwin, Junot Diaz, bell hooks, Michelle Alexander, WEB DuBois, and Sherman Alexie.  We also help our students acquire and hone the soft skills they will need in the college process/during college, as well as develop higher order/critical thinking skills through our Entrepreneurship class, which culminates in a one-day startup fair with real live entrepreneurs from London, Istanbul, Philadelphia, NYC, and more! advising the students all day until their crowning faceoff – a Shark Tank competition.   Students (all of whom are low-SES, almost all of whom are of color, most of whom are first-generation) attend on full scholarship and, besides studying for the SAT, being part of Issues and taking Entrepreneurship classes, enjoy a traditional summer camp experience (complete with Friday night campfires and making S’mores!) while becoming a part of a welcoming and introspective camp community.  One of the greatest compliments we have received came from a student who had been in foster care and had had significant trouble at home who told us that Yleana was the first place she felt safe, like people really cared about her.  We strive to create and promote that atmosphere – a loving, caring, safe place for kids who haven’t always had it easy.
