Devon Dickson is one of the psychology interns at West. As a psychology intern, she is here to help with “anything that is holding a student back from succeeding in school.” She helps run the Students for Students club and so far has enjoyed “building connections and knowing students” so far at West. Ms. Dickson has spent the past two years in Chicago Public Schools, but this is her first internship and the “first time [she is] working full time […] as a school psychologist.” She went to North Central College for undergrad, studying psychology, and is attending the Chicago School of Professional Psychology for grad school.  Ms. Dickson knew she wanted to work in a school setting, but it wasn’t until she started grad school that she decided she wanted to be a school psychologist to get to “work with kids, teachers and parents,” and “counseling students has been a really great experience for [her]” so far at West.
