In Memory of Mary Sherlach, Sandy Hook ES School Psychologist
Among those who lost their life in the heartbreaking tragedy in Newtown, CT was Mary Sherlach, Sandy Hook ES school psychologist and a NASP member. Like all school psychologists, Mary cared deeply about her students and was committed to their personal well-being and success in school, at home, and throughout life.
She is remembered by colleagues, friends, and family as someone who “wanted to help kids get over their problems and go on to be successful.” Mary’s work throughout her career and her bravery on Friday exemplify the characteristic so common for school psychologists and other educators of putting children first. The thoughts and prayers of the school psychology family are with Mary’s family and circle of friends, as well as the students she served so well.
