    Greetings, 
    Welcome to my district web page. I am excited to share with you a summary of my interests and background. In 1991,  I graduated from Kutztown University with a B.S. in Psychology.  Upon graduating in 1991, I began working as a Crisis and Residential Counselor and continued on that path until 1998.  I graduated from Immaculata University with an M.A. in Counseling in 1998 and worked as a Mobile Therapist and Behavioral Specialist until 2003. In 2003, I obtained a Certification in School Psychology and began working at Exeter School District as a Pa. Certified School Psychologist.  I have been employed at Exeter School District since that time.  My career in the field of psychology has allowed me to help individuals with serious mental illnesses, and to assist children with various forms of disabilities.
     
       Since 2003, I have had the pleasure of working as a Pa. Certified School Psychologist at Exeter School District, at both the elementary and secondary levels.  Throughout the week, I can be found working in the guidance office of Exeter High School along-side an experienced and well respected group of professionals, who share my commitment to promoting individual achievement and personal growth. Outside of my primary vocation, I enjoy my life with my wife, Betsy, who is also an educator, and with our son, Michael.  Much of my free time is spent with my family, wonderful family dog, Lucy, and cool cat, Finster (When Finster decides he wants attention), and volunteering as a Cross Contry assistant coach at Exeter.  I also enjoy weight lifting, walking, biking, hiking, meditation, fishing, archery, Eagles football, the Blues, and hanging out with friends and neighbors.  I also enjoy visiting my home town, Jim Thorpe, Pa.  I'll be glad to speak with you if you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss your child's possible disability.  Please email or call, if you would like to meet during parent/teacher conferences or at any other time @ esglassic@exetersd.org or 610-779-3060 (2153).
