Student Spotlight – Sarah Smith

Meet Sarah at Helen Ross McNabb (Therapeutic Preschool/RIP)

Sarah Smith

“What made you choose your placement-
I knew it was a well respected name in our field.

What concerned you most PRIOR to beginning your practicum-
Getting everything set up with an agency to do the practicum

What are your thoughts on that concern now-
It wasn’t that bad

What has been your biggest accomplishment at your placement so far-
Already leading small groups in therapeutic preschool, which is something I was told I’d do by the end of my time there.

What has been the most interesting/exciting thing that has happened so far-
I love the concept of the therapeutic preschool. I describe it as being therapy for kids with traumatic history disguised as a preschool.”
