Dr. Cait Gilmartin, School Psychologist at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School, was recently awarded the title of Pennsylvania's 2018 School Psychologist of the Year by the Association of School Psychologists of Pennsylvania (ASPP). Dr. Gilmartin was also named to the ASPP Board this past summer.
"I am most looking forward to the opportunity to continue to lead by example in the best practices we use in the Colonial School District, exchange information and resources with other districts across the state and be a key advocate at the state level in promoting the most effective ways to support students," said Dr. Gilmartin.
In addition to working in the area of Crisis Prevention and Intervention in school and community settings, Dr. Gilmartin has taught the subject at the graduate level and engaged in research that led to co-authoring a white paper for the state of Pennsylvania on Universal Screening for Mental Health and co-editing a research newsletter on suicide prevention and intervention from 2009-2017.
Dr. Gilmartin has been a School Psychologist in the Colonial School District for three years.
