hi, i’m jenny ponzuric!
I am a Licensed Educational Psychologist bringing my background in school psychology, university teaching, and training of special education team members to my business.
Combining my education, experience, and dedication to students struggling in school, I consult, coach, and train educators that support them.
Working in the field of school psychology for over 20 years, I expanded my knowledge and expertise in assessment by obtaining my post-graduate certificate in School Neuropsychology.
Building on individual school site trainings, I also provide district-level and SELPA-level trainings on topics such as the Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses (PSW) Model for identification of Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD), as well as, Multi-Tier System of Supports/Response to Instruction and Intervention (MTSS/Rtl2).
My expertise in learning and training expanded as an administrator in a county-side teacher support services program that assisted special education teachers in clearing their credentials and obtaining added authorizations. Working collaboratively with a team, I wrote the curriculum and trained teachers in areas such as behavior, literacy strategies, and a wide range of IDEA areas of eligibility.
I have taught at numerous colleges and universities in Southern CA, including Pepperdine University, CSU Northridge, and Moorpark College; most recently, I was an adjunct professor in Phillip’s Graduate University’s School PSychology graduate program.
I began working full-time in my business in January 2016 to follow my passion for assisting struggling students.
