Michele McPherson

I am one of  the School Counselors at Castleberry Elementary. I serve PreK, 1st, 3rd and 5th grade this year. I actually went to Castleberry ISD throughout my childhood and even graduated from Castleberry High School. I  graduated from Texas A & M University with my Bachelors of Science degree in Education. I  then taught 5th grade at Joy James Elementary for 4 years. While staying home with my son, I  went back to college and got my Masters Degree in Counseling and Human Development at University of North Texas. I have been a  School Counselor at Castleberry Elementary for 17 years. My other work experiences include In Home Trainer for children with Autism, Dyslexia Testing Coordinator, GT Facilitator and Qualified Mental Health Professional at All Church Home. I feel blessed to be able to serve the students and staff here at CE.
