Please welcome Brad Wooten, school psychologist, to Henry County Public Schools.
Brad, who is a licensed school psychologist, comes to Henry County with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and an Educational Specialist degree from Murray State University. He practiced school psychology for six years in Clarksville, Tenn., and completed a one-year internship in Martin, Tenn. He also worked for vocational rehabilitation under the supervision of a psychologist in graduate school along with being a graduate assistant.
Brad is originally from Kentucky and wanted to relocate back to his home state. He chose Henry County as the district he wanted to serve.
"I read and heard good things about Henry County and decided to apply and felt good about a final decision after the job was offered to me,” Brad said. “I look forward to being back in the Bluegrass State and working with the school district and community to create an environment where our students can thrive.”
Brad believes his role as a school psychologist focuses on advocacy.
“My role is to advocate for all students by making sure both their social-emotional needs and academic needs are met and to facilitate team discussions on how to best meet the overall educational needs of students including addressing any mental health concerns,” Brad said. “I hope to work with all stakeholders to ensure that not only are our students' educational needs met, but that their mental health needs are met as well.”
