School Psychologist (just to the left of center)
I am so grateful to begin my twelfth year as a school psychologist in APS and at Ashlawn, and thirteenth year in the field of school psychology. I am assigned as Ashlawn’s school psychologist three days per week. I also serve as a Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) instructor and Section 504 Coordinator in various schools throughout the district. As the daughter of a teacher, I always had a desire to work with children and amongst educators; however, it was not until I was serving as an Americorps volunteer in college that I felt the strong pull towards supporting children’s mental health. School psychology seemed like the perfect way for me to have a positive impact on children’s development. As a school psychologist, I not only support children’s learning and academic development, but their social skills development, behavioral development and, perhaps most importantly, their emotional well being and mental health. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Spanish from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, and attended graduate school at Indiana University – Bloomington, where I obtained a Master of Science degree in Educational Psychology and a Specialist in Education (Ed.S) degree in School Psychology, with a minor in counseling. As the mother of two young daughters (a kindergartener and a toddler), much of my free time is spent exploring playgrounds and museums; the beach (30A!) and amusement parks are also two of our favorite places to visit as a family. Attending concerts and discovering new music and coffee shops top my list of personal interests. Perhaps because I am the mom of girls, I am drawn to children’s books that portray strong females, such as Rosie Revere, Engineer and The Most Magnificent Thing. Wonder (and its picture book counterpart, We’re All Wonders) and Anne of Green Gables are also personal favorites of mine. Knowing that staff care so much about each and every student’s individual growth and development as a unique human being is why I am so grateful to be a part of the Ashlawn Community.
School Social Worker (far left)
My name is Kory Bradley and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I will be at Ashlawn on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Bloomsburg University and my Master’s in Social Work from Temple University, in addition to completing a Home and School Visitor Certification from Bryn Mawr College. In my spare time, I enjoy telling stories of my two cats, traveling, and creating a healthy lifestyle. I look forward to working with the staff and families of Ashlawn!
