Meet Dr. Koehler

Jessica Koehler, Ph.D.

Director of Koehler Academy

I am a former School Psychologist turned full-time "indie schooling" (homeschooling) parent of two boys. I have a Ph.D. in School Psychology from the University of Maryland in addition to a B.A. in Psychology (University of Georgia) and an M.Ed./ Ed.S. (Georgia State University) in School Psychology. Prior to homeschooling, I worked in several public school and university settings in multiple states, focusing on psychoeducational assessment and development of interventions for students with social/emotional, academic, and behavioral difficulties. My graduate research focused on school-based prevention, collaborative school teams, and teacher efficacy. In addition, I evaluated children with Autism and/or Hyperlexia in my capacity as the Head Research Assistant at the Center for the Study of Learning, a functional neuroimaging lab at Georgetown University. I also have experience as a lecturer in psychology at two-year and four-year institutions of higher education.
