My name is Troy Loker, Ph.D. I recently moved from Tampa, FL to Kaneohe, HI, and have been serving as a school psychologist in the Honolulu District since January 2016. Before relocating to Hawaii with my husband, I worked as a school psychologist in an elementary school, and then as a district-level Response to Intervention (RtI) specialist and a Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) district coordinator. I served in various positions on the Executive Board of the Florida Association of School Psychologists (FASP) since 2009 and was FASP President in 2015. I am interested in becoming more involved with HASP as a way to continue supporting the field of school psychology for the benefit of all children. I enjoy finding, organizing, developing, and sharing resources and information in ways that are user-friendly and easily accessible. I believe this would be a helpful contribution for the Secretary position as I would hope to further enhance member communication, correspondence, and record keeping.
Working in Aiea for Hawaii's Central District as a school psychologist.
My dad once said once we think we know everything and stop striving to learn is the second we become 'dumb.' This is something that has stuck with me. I try to apply this to my personal and professional life. I want to learn as much as I can and I try to help others do the same. I want people to leave meetings and interactions with me feeling more supported, competent, and confident in their own abilities than before. There's always more learning and growing to be done. I will continue to strive to do so. I'm from Oregon and work in West HI, Big Island. I'd like to see HASP continue on its current trajectory. As President I will help promote our profession and help others understand our place in the education setting and the variety of expertise we have to offer.
