We are pleased to introduce Molly Bernosky, Ed.S., M.Ed., Diagnostic Center Lead Psychologist. Molly will be working closely with Carmen Mendoza, M.Ed., and Mary Ann Mulcahey, Ph.D., in Springer’s Student Diagnostic Center at the Hyde Park campus.
Molly is already passionate about the new diagnostics offerings. She shares more:
I’m excited to be part of the collective expertise of the staff at Springer. Springer Diagnostics is in the unique position of being able to utilize the strengths of the team that’s already here to add this new arm to the organization. We can make a direct impact on the community because there is such a need to get students evaluated.
What do you like most about your work?
Being a school psychologist is a lot like being a detective. We’re collecting a lot of information that can be validating or new and eye opening for families. It’s really neat to be in feedback sessions with families and be able to show them all the different pieces of the puzzle--to make a more comprehensive picture of their child. What’s great about that work is they feel like they are empowered to co-create a hope-filled future for their child. They gain an understanding and better footing on how to help their child with the struggles they’ve been enduring.
Molly has spent 15 years in large local school districts with three years as an administrator. She is a licensed school psychologist having previously served as an assistant principal and lead school psychologist in the Mason City School District, and as the administrator lead for special education for Sycamore Community Schools just prior to joining Springer. Molly's combined experiences make her an excellent partner for parents as they assess, identify and make plans for childrens' educational needs.
Springer is thrilled to be able to serve the community as another much-needed source for educational evaluations, and proud to welcome Molly Bernosky to join us in our mission to empower students with learning disabilities to lead successful lives.
