Molly McCloskey

Molly McCloskey is a managing director for whole-child programs at ASCD, directing multiple components of the ASCD Whole Child Initiative, a multi-year, cross-organizational program, including member and non-member outreach and engagement, ASCD'S Healthy School Communities Program, and development of capacity-building resources and services.

This is her third role at ASCD. Previously she was project director for the First Amendment Schools program and was a director of constituent services, working with various constituent groups including state and provincial affiliates.

Before coming to ASCD, McCloskey was executive director of community youth development for the YMCA of Greater Cleveland, where she supervised an alternative school for secondary-school students who would otherwise have been expelled and an alternative court for first-time misdemeanor offenders. Her career began as a 5th grade teacher in the District of Columbia and has included every level from pre-kindergarten to graduate school. She holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from the Catholic University of America and a master's of education degree in school counseling from the University of Maryland.
