Hello! My name is Teresa Bergmann, and I am very excited to be the School Psychologist at Thorp this year. I am originally from the Detroit, Michigan area but Chicago has been my home for the last 9 years. I am a proud alumni of the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) where I attended undergrad. Through tutoring and mentoring children and adolescents, I developed a passion for supporting students and watching them grow in their abilities and self-confidence. After a short career in marketing, I decided to pursue my passions of education and psychology, and I received my Masters in Educational Psychology and an Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology from Loyola University. As a school psychologist, I love helping students and building on their strengths so they can thrive here at Thorp! Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family (especially my niece and nephew) and friends, anything DIY, reading the latest fiction, and being active outdoors. I look forward to getting to know and supporting the Thorp family!
