School Psychologist Info

  • School psychologists provide direct support and interventions to students, consult with teachers, families, and other school-employed mental health professionals (i.e., school counselors, school social workers) to improve support strategies, work with school administrators to improve school-wide practices and policies, and collaborate with community providers to coordinate needed services.

  • Dr. Iacovelli has been one of the school psychologists at Saddle Rock Elementary School since 2011. His job is to help children succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. He wants to create a safe, healthy, and supportive learning environment for all students that strengthen connections between home and school. His goal is to have every child have at least one person that they can call their friend.


    He practices cognitive-behavioral psychology, which means that what we think and what we do influences how we feel. For example, when we tell ourselves that we are going to do well and are prepared, we often feel confident. However, when we think that we are not going to do well and are not prepared, we can become anxious or worried. In working with Saddle Rock students, Dr. Iacovelli tries to increase their positive thoughts and actions to maximize their potential for success.

    Dr. Iacovelli is a huge sports fan. Not only does he enjoy watching sports, but also playing them. His favorite teams are the New York Yankees and New York Jets.
