Rachel Shaw, Ed.S.
My name is Rachel Shaw and I am a School Psychologist at Churchill School in Homewood, IL. I attended Governors State University where I obtained my Education Specialist degree (Ed.S.) in School Psychology. My role as a School Psychologist is to work with at-risk general education students and students with special needs throughout the building. I also assist families and other staff members in building a strong mental health environment for themselves and others. I often work with students who are struggling with meeting general education curriculum demands, students with social emotional difficulties and those who are in need of a Section 504 Plan or an IEP (Individualized Education Plan- Special Education). Through tutoring, academic push-in services and counseling, I help shape young minds and prepare my students for real life events.
