I am the School Psychologist assigned to Bamber Valley and Longfellow.  I have been with the district for 17 years and live in Rochester.  My wife and I have 5 children that all attend or have attended Rochester Public Schools. 

School psychologists are uniquely qualified members of school teams that support students’ ability to learn and teachers’ ability to teach. They apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior, to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School psychologists partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community.

Rochester Public Schools use school psychologists for assessing and monitoring evaluation and re-evaluation processes for students on Individual Education Plans (IEP), or those who may qualify for IEPs. 

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.
