My name is Jennifer McBride, and I am the School Psychologist on the Child Study Team in the Woodstown-Pilesgrove Regional School District. I work with students and families across the district from grades Pre-K through the post-graduate level. I am also the case manager for students in grades 6-8, students in our 18-21 program as well as some students who may be in out of district placements.
As a graduate of Woodstown High School, I am passionate about assisting in the success of our Woodstown students and I am so honored to be working in my hometown and in such an amazing school district.
I earned my Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology at Rowan University in 2017 and I received my Master’s in Clinical and Counseling Psychology at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2009. In addition to my work in education, I have worked in the field of mental health for the past 12 years, and I am a licensed Professional Counselor in the state of New Jersey. I have also work as an adjunct professor of psychology at Rowan College of Gloucester County. Over the past 5 years, I have worked as the case manager for the high school and I am excited about the opportunity to work with our Middle School students. It is a privilage to work across the Woodstown-Pilesgrove District as the CST School Psychologist and I love the opportunity to work with our students of all ages and to be apart of all of our schools!
What is School Psychologist?
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.
