Community Spotlights

CCASP is committed to honoring our colleagues and lifting local professionals. 

Summer 2022 Educator Spotlight

Yolanda Mejia, School Psychologist

This season, CCASP is happy to future our upcoming president, Yolanda Mejia! Yolanda has been heavily involved in CCASP's programming for 4+ years.

Yolanda describes herself as a Latina immigrant from Mexico. She is a proud mother of two very strong girls. Between gymnastics, rock climbing, and track– they keep her busy! In her spare time, she enjoys running and outdoor activities. If she weren’t a school psychologist, she would be a full-time mom.

Yolanda’s favorite part of her work is meeting new families and guiding them through the initial stages of education and specialized services. She specializes in behavior support and preschool assessments.

Yolanda’s advice for a new educator? “Find a balance in your career, personal life, and relationships that best meets your needs. The right placement/assignment is out there, keep looking until you find it.”
