Nora Neztsosie, M.S.

Nora Neztsosie, M.S.School Psychology Trainee and member of the Native American & Indigenous Scholars Collaborative

Nora Neztsosie, Diné (Navajo), came to San Diego State University with her Master’s degree in Special Education, and many years of teaching experience in Native communities. She is currently pursuing her Ed.S. degree in School Psychology at SDSU, with a specialization in understanding indigenous thought and knowledge, historical and educational influences on learning and behavior, and in the design of resilience-based and trauma-informed interventions with youth from that community. Nora’s recognition of the many contradictions found within schools relative to indigenous home culture and identity has empowered her to advocate for Native American students, especially those with disabilities.  Nora hopes that as a future Diné school psychologist, she can make a significant difference in restoring harmony for Native youth and communities.

The School Psychology Program at San Diego State has provided me with bountiful opportunities to develop professionally and personally. I am constantly learning new ideas in our seminar class about culturally appropriate assessments, school-based prevention programs, and interventions to support students learning. My practicum experiences taught me consultation skills to better understand teacher and support them, as well as counseling skills to allow me to work with diverse students.

SDSU's School Psychology program has built on my teaching experience and extended my knowledge to view individual students from an ecological lens. It has provided me with unique experiences using models and theories taught by experts in the field. This program gave me the tools to be successful in my learning by giving us field experience to integrate our classroom instruction.
