Betsy Burris PhD, MSW, LCSW
I’m a teacher educator and a psychotherapist, a combination that allows me to see classroom behavior and teacher experience through an amazingly helpful lens: the psychodynamic lens. By “psycho” I mean having to do with emotions and unconscious expectations of ourselves and the world; by “dynamic” I mean having to do with relationships and the ways we fit together with other people, for better and for worse. I have been helping teachers and administrators (and parents and even students!) hone their psychodynamic lenses for over a decade.
