Hello students and families! My name is Theresa Maurer and I am the new school psychologist at Cherry Drive. Originally from Wisconsin, I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I completed my Masters at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and recently graduated with my Education Specialist (EdS) degree. I was an intern in the district last year, and can't wait to begin my career at Cherry Drive! I am passionate about mental health and mindfulness, and believe that all students have the ability to succeed with the right accommodations and supports. I'm also an advocate for trauma-informed care and providing a safe and predictable environment for students.
On the weekends, you can typically find me in the mountains hiking, camping, or simply exploring. I enjoy reading and spending time with my 4-year-old rescue pup, Bella. I am a total dog lover and hope to adopt more in the future. I look forward to meeting you all and joining the Cheetah family!
