- Stephanie Gray Stephanie_gray@mspp.edu
Stephanie Gray is a second year student in the MA/CAGS School Psychology program. She graduated with a BA in Psychology from the College of Wooster in 2009. After commencement, she moved back home to Chicago where she co-taught a preschool class, worked in an after school program and volunteered as a case coach for a non-profit organization to provide support to children, volunteer foster families, and biological parents. She chose to attend MSPP because she believes that an integral part of the learning process lies in the holistic approach. Providing services to children, their familial support groups, and the community through a multi-faceted school-based system to provide the foundation for a positive future. These facets are emphasized within the MSPP community.
