School Psychologist



Mrs. Mary Knuth

August 2023 will mark twelve years that I have served as the school psychologist for St. Jude! I grew up and attended undergraduate school in Virginia (College of William and Mary), then studied School Psychology at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. I met my husband at UNC and followed him back to his hometown of Pittsburgh (sorry, but we are Steelers fans!) After a five-year stint in Pittsburgh, my family relocated to Cincinnati in the early ‘90s. I stayed home with our three children for twelve years before resuming my school psychology career in August 2004. When not at St. Jude, I serve special needs preschoolers at C.O. Harrison and Delshire Elementary Schools (OHLSD). My hobbies include reading, ringing handbells, spending time with my husband and adult children, and relishing my new title of “Grandma” (Joseph Francis Knuth, born 5/14/2023!!)
