Diagnosed with ADHD at age 23, Jonathan has earned his BA in Criminal Justice and a Masters in School Psychology. His first career was in Juvenile corrections, but for the past six years he has changed things to become a school psychologist. During his tenure, he has implemented precise academic & behavior systems, (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support+ADHD= MTSS on Steroids), to ensure he & his fellow educators are providing adequate support for all types of students. His work has focused on creating data systems where educators & helpers can use the data to guide their instructional practices while providing targeted interventions for the students who need it, (Academic and Behavior). The data system gives educators access to students’ demographics, academic present levels, (based on formative assessments), and behavior needs, with just a click of a button. In addition, all the information is presented in one document so that the data can be sorted for further analyses. The staff has fully embraced it, and this has led to an overall improvement of student’s academics, behavior and social/ emotional knowledge. Recently earning his doctorate in Education Learning, Jonathan’s life is now dedicated to helping all students become fearless and courageous, at any moment. Enjoy!
