WELCOME TO DR. BASKIND'S HOME PAGE!
Hello! My name is Dr. Baskind and I am the general education school psychologist here at Memorial. I work in collaboration with the three school counselors to support the academic, social and emotional development of our students.
I am involved with many facets of the school day ranging from classroom lessons, special events and school assemblies to peer support groups and student leadership training. Additionally, I offer supportive services to our students, parents and staff. These include teacher and parent consultation, student counseling, family counseling, crisis intervention, and conflict mediation.
As Memorial's Section 504 Coordinator, I collaborate with staff, parents, and students to ensure that our general education students with special needs receive the accommodations they need to be successful.
As Memorial's Anti-Bullying Specialist, I collaborate with the entire school community to strengthen our bullying prevention efforts, improve school climate, and address concerns related to incidents of bullying.
As coordinator of Intervention and Referral Services, I collaborate with teachers, academic coaches, parents, administrators and students to develop and implement strategies that help students experience greater success.
I am also proud to serve as an advisor to the following Memorial programs: Peer to Peer, Difference Makers, R.A.D. Club, and the Spring Musical!
Please feel free to reach out to me and let me know how you are doing! By request, I am also happy to connect with you by phone or via a Google hangout. I can be reached by phone at (732) 972-7115, ext. 6920 or via email at [email protected]
