Psychology is the systematic and scientific study of human behavior and mental processes. Koehler Academy was created as a way to make the science of psychology easily accessible.
I teach live online psychology classes through Athena's Advanced Academy and write articles for my Psychology Today blog, Beyond School Walls, as a way to connect the science of psychology to learning and life. In addition, I have a YouTube Channel focused on psychology.

I have a Ph.D. in school psychology from the University of Maryland, where my graduate research focused on school-based prevention, collaborative school teams, and teacher efficacy.
I've held various research and practical roles, including evaluating children with autism, hyperlexia, and dyslexia at the Center for the Study of Learning, a functional neuroimaging lab at Georgetown University.
I also worked as a school psychologist in public schools, focusing on psychoeducational assessment and the development of academic and behavioral interventions.
Additionally, I have experience as a lecturer in psychology at two-year and four-year institutions of higher education and I currently teach gifted high school learners in a live online setting.
I am also a lucky homeschooling mom of two exceptional boys!
