Dr. Joseph R. Flippo, school psychologist

Dr. Joseph R. Flippo served APS for 11 years as a school psychologist with the special education department. During that time he worked with students, parents and school staff to ensure that students who qualified received the appropriate educational and ancillary services.

Dr. Flippo is known for his thorough work ethic as well as his endless sense of humor. While working at APS, Dr. Flippo sat on numerous committees as well as serviced the following schools: Dennis Chavez, Desert Ridge, Double Eagle, Eisenhower, Georgia O'Keeffe, Gov. Bent, Grant, Hubert Humphrey, La Cueva, Madison, Mitchell and North Star.

Although he will miss his colleagues at APS, Dr. Flippo has decided to extend his career with the Presbyterian Medical Group as a Behavioral Health Clinician for both adults and adolescents. He is grateful for the years of experience that he gained at APS as well as the many friendships that he made throughout his career.

In addition to being a strong advocate for students and their families, Dr. Flippo has also been a significant mentor to his daughter Melanie, who is a special education teacher with APS. He hopes to stay in touch with the many colleagues that he has had the pleasure of working with.
