Our Staff

The children of Clear View receive the care and attention of some 65 highly qualified mental health and special education professionals each day. They include clinical social workers, psychologists, mental health counselors, speech and language clinicians, crisis counselors, school nurse and program supervisors who work with individual children and families. New York State Certified Special Education Teachers and assistant teachers trained and experienced in responding to the needs of children with emotional disabilities and psychiatric illness, offer small group and individual instruction. A full time child psychiatrist provides psychiatric services as well as supervision and oversight of the clinical program.

All staff members — clinicians, buildings and grounds workers, teachers, secretaries, transportation providers — participate in the welcoming, affirming, therapeutic environment and are wholly dedicated to each child’s individual well-being and recovery.

“I knew that this school embodied all that I believed in for education–being able to address our students as whole beings, emotional and social, not just purely academic beings. This school is my family; it’s a collection of dedicated, hardworking people who are passionate about creating opportunities and better lives for our students.”
– Lindsay Barbarossa, Teacher
