Michelle Malvey, ED.S.
Michelle has 30 plus years of educational experience including administration, teaching, District RtI Coordinator and as a school psychologist working at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
Michelle has presented on many topics at the local, state and national level including SEL, MTSS, Trauma-Informed Schools, discipline through a mental health lens, and advocating for children, youth and families. While serving as an elementary principal, she assisted in the acquisition of a Kaiser Permanente Thriving Schools grant and worked closely with the District Social Emotional Learning Coach and other principals to create and implement an SEL framework which resulted in increased academic results, decreased disciplinary incidents and an overall increase in positive connections with the school community.
Michelle believes that social emotional wellness is critical to the educational setting for everyone involved including students, staff, families and the community. Her focus is on systematically teaching, supporting and coaching these skills much like we do with reading and math. Her favorite quote is, “Challenging behavior occurs when the demands being placed upon a child outstrip the skills they have to respond adaptively.”~Unknown
