WSPA Officers


   

    Tonya Klem

    President

     wspapresident@gmail.com 


I am a school psychologist, a wife, and a mother of two beautiful boys. My career started over 25 years ago as a counselor working with teenagers in residential settings.  After moving to Wisconsin in 2008, I earned my Ed. S. and National Certification in School Psychology (NCSP).  I have worked in Wisconsin as a school psychologist since 2011.  Currently, I work part-time with the Ellsworth Community School District and part-time in my private practice. I especially enjoy my role as a school-based mental health provider and working with children and adolescents with complex trauma.  Additionally, I am passionate about working closely with students, educators and families when an individual is struggling to learn to read.  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the school psychologists in our state as WSPA President.

  Brooke Souppenne

  Secretary

  brooke.fails@gmail.com

I have been a school psychologist in the Milwaukee Public School district since 2009. This dynamic position allows me to practice in various capacities day to day. I love to provide and facilitate preventative services in the school buildings with students, fami- lies, and staff. The Secretary position is my first with WSPA and I am look- ing forward to serving on the board. In the field of school psychology I am passionate about culturally responsive practices, specifically, as they relate to assessment practices and behavioral and academic interventions. I re- ceived my Ed.S. from UW River Falls and my Bachelor's degree from Gus- tavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN. I am a proud native Minnesotan and yes, Vikings fan!! Outside of work I enjoy spending time and going on adventures big or small with my family and friends.

I am an NCSP Psychologist working in the Madison Metropolitan School District since 2013.  Prior to joining the incredible team of psychologist in MMSD, I worked for the Waterloo School District.  I attended UW-Madison for my undergraduate and graduate degree, and continue to enjoy the Madison community with my husband and children.  I joined the WSPA Board in 2017 and am excited to Chair the Recognition and Scholarship Committee and to serve as the At-Large Executive Board Member.  Through my role on the Recognition and Scholarship Committee I have the amazing opportunity to learn about the dedicated work of graduate students and school psychologists across Wisconsin.  I enjoy my work on the WSPA Board because it allows me to advocate for our profession, our schools, and our students.
