Chris Grace is a certified school psychologist working in St. Mary’s County (MD) public schools. Chris has been a school psychologist for more than 25 years and enjoys working with students, teachers, and families to help children achieve success in school. Chris is energized by working with students who have autism spectrum disabilities as well as helping schools to adopt positive behavioral supports.
She obtained her BA in Psychology from Clemson University and her MA in School Psychology from the University of South Carolina. Chris was intrigued by brain physiology courses in school, so she is excited to work with the Transformation Education Institute to be able to share information about how the brain works and how adults can help students in school. Chris has two young adult children, so she especially likes the TranZed Institute’s Giving a Fish a Bath workshop!
