    I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology in 1989. I earned my Master of Education Degree in School Psychology in 1991 and my Educational Specialist Degree in School Psychology in 1992 from The College of William and Mary. I have called Currituck County Schools home since 1992.  I earned my national certification as a school psychologist in 1997 and continue to be nationally certified.  I was certified through Jensen Brain-Based Learning from July 2009 through February 2015.  I completed the requirements for the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Traumatic Brain Injury (NC DPI TBI) Registry in June 2015, allowing me to complete related assessments.  I currently serve on the NC DPI TBI Council to address TBI needs across the state.  I completed the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction New Exceptional Childrens' Director Institute in January 2009 and obtained my administrative license during the 2010-2011 school year.  I serve on the district EC Leadership Team, working to improve the services provided to our students and the support provided to our staff.  My family lives in Currituck County, and my three children have attended Currituck County Schools.  I am committed to providing the best services possible to each child.
    I currently serve 5 schools (CCHS, JPKEC, CCMS, GES, JES) and complete all preschool assessments via a transdisciplinary play based assessment model.  My schedule varies from week to week, so please contact me via email at kmcclellan@currituck.k12.nc.us.  I am here to help in any way possible.
