At the Sept. 22 meeting of the North Babylon School District Board of Education, the board honored two high school staff members for recent regional recognitions.
North Babylon High School psychologists Laura Dieckhoff and Michelle Smeraldi were named the Long Island Association of School Psychologists Chapter P Co-psychologists of the Year. In earning this recognition, they were nominated to be named the New York State psychologists of the year, which they were also awarded.
“This dynamic duo is truly heroic,” North Babylon High School Principal Dr. Jonathan Klomp said. “They work amazingly together with the entire staff to support our students and their most critical needs. I am thrilled to have the psychologists of the year here at North Babylon High School.”
Ms. Dieckhoff and Ms. Smeraldi will receive their awards from the New York Association of School Psychologists during a ceremony next month.
