Hello, my name is Kelsey Schweitzer and I am the School Psychologist at Netherwood Knoll Elementary and Prairie View Elementary. I am excited about working with the learners and families in this community.  Before coming to Oregon, I worked as a psychologist for 4 years in Milwaukee Public Schools, and for 3 years in the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District.  I am an advocate and resource for the social, emotional, and academic needs of our learners, and work collaboratively with school staff and families to support those needs.  Together, we can identify the strategies, tools, and supports needed for all learners to succeed!

Michelle Kretschman

I am the district’s Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Coach for PreK-6th grade. Before entering this role, I served as a special education teacher for over 20 years in diversified settings. The focus of the SEL Coach is increasing the internal capacity of OSD educators to meet the academic and social/emotional needs of our learners through: partnering with OSD educators in creating personalized, responsive classroom and school environments, as well as facilitating multiple types of professional learning opportunities in alignment with our instructional vision, data-determined needs, and OSD values.

My focus is integrating social/emotional competencies into tier 1 instruction.  Areas of focus will be developed collaboratively with the administrators and student services staff with a goal of consistency across the buildings and social emotional wellness for all students with a whole child focus. I have deep roots within the OSD community and have two children who attend OSD schools.
