Provo City School District

Spring Creek Elementary School

We are so grateful to have Zack Cusworth at Spring Creek this year. He is currently a school psychology intern for the Provo School District where he is working in a couple of elementary schools. Zack’s desire to become a school psychologist stemmed from his desire to support children in their academic pursuits, his love for research-driven practices and data collection, and his understanding that he was not strong enough to become a math teacher like he originally believed in second grade. Zack has found that what he enjoys most about working as a school psychologist is first the students and the hijinks they get into, second the teams and personnel he works with, and third the office spaces he is given to work in, which has included storage closets (but you can make any room fun with posters and a good attitude!). Zack’s research interests focus on the formation of gender identity and LGBTQ+ supports and resources. Zack has a wonderful wife and daughter who have been instrumental with their support and love as Zack has pursued this profession. Thank you Mr. Z for all you do!

¡¡Día de Apreciación del Psicólogo Escolar!! - Zack Cusworth

Estamos muy agradecidos por tener a Zack Cusworth en Spring Creek este año. Actualmente es un pasante de psicología escolar para el Distrito Escolar de Provo donde está trabajando en un par de escuelas primarias. El deseo de Zack de convertirse en un psicólogo escolar surgió de su deseo de apoyar a los niños en sus actividades académicas, su amor por las prácticas basadas en la investigación y la recopilación de datos, y su comprensión de que no era lo suficientemente fuerte como para convertirse en un profesor de matemáticas como él creía originalmente en segundo grado. Zack ha descubierto que lo que más le gusta de trabajar como psicólogo escolar es, en primer lugar, los estudiantes y las travesuras en las que se meten, en segundo lugar, los equipos y el personal con el que trabaja y, en tercer lugar, los espacios de oficina que se le dan para trabajar, que han incluido armarios de almacenamiento (¡pero se puede hacer que cualquier habitación sea divertida con carteles y una buena actitud!) Los intereses de investigación de Zack se centran en la formación de la identidad de género y los apoyos y recursos LGBTQ+. Zack tiene una maravillosa esposa e hija que han sido fundamentales con su apoyo y amor mientras Zack ha perseguido esta profesión. Gracias Sr. Z por todo lo que hace!
