Hello! My name is Sharon McGarvey. I am the School Psychologist here at Belfast Central School and am enjoying working with wonderful teachers, students, and parents. I have been a school psychologist for many years in Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Ohio prior to moving to New York. It is a privilege to be part of the Belfast Central School Community.
My goal at BCS is to support the social, emotional, behavioral, and learning needs of our students. I also work closely with teachers to design interventions for students in a variety of situations. I am also available to work with families to brainstorm ideas and resources to support needs. My daily activities at school involve evaluations of students for possible CSE help, observations, counseling both individually and in groups, problem solving with teachers and students, interventions, parent contact, response to intervention, and supporting the different needs of our students.
On a personal note, my husband and I enjoy the beauty of western New York and hiking. We are blessed to have two daughters and son-in-laws along with two sweet granddaughters.
If you have any questions and I can be of any support, please contact me.
