Congratulations to Boston P-8 School Psychologist Dr. Brittany Greiert for earning the Colorado Society of School Psychologists “School Psychologist of the Year” award! This honor recognizes Dr. Greiert for her passion to help students succeed socially, behaviorally, emotionally and academically.
At Boston, Dr. Greiert provides students with individualized counseling and small group social skills support, designs and implements comprehensive behavioral interventions and much more. To further her impact, she serves on the building council, administration and Multi-Tiered System of Supports teams, using her expertise in culturally-sensitive trauma-informed practices to lead her team in providing appropriate interventions.
Elkhart Elementary School Psychologist Ariel Bowlby, Ed.S. NCSP nominated her, noting that Dr. Greiert is driven by data in all that she does.
“She never makes a claim or requests support or guidance without first collecting any and all necessary data points to back up her claim,” Bowlby wrote. “This is something that allows her to be respected and viewed as a reliable and trustworthy resource for all who interact with her.”
Dr. Greiert actively shares her spirit of advocacy and has become known as an expert on it in our district. She serves on the APS School Psychology Leadership Team, training her peers on how to advocate at the local, state and national levels.
Dr. Greiert has also met with state representatives on Capitol Hill, serves as the CSSP Legislative Representative and a Western Regional Representative on the National Association of School Psychologists Government and Professional Relations Committee. As part of this work, she tracked more than 32 legislative bills and worked closely with CSSP to testify in support or opposition of bills relevant to the organization’s mission.
We are proud to have Dr. Greiert on our team. Her dedication helps APS maintain safe, healthy and supportive learning environments for all students. Thanks to Aurora voters who approved our 2018 mill levy override, we welcomed more than 100 additional professionals to our Mental Health and Counseling team to join in this great work. Together, we will help every APS student shape a successful future.
