Degrees and Certifications:
WELCOME TO GUIDANCE!!!
Hello, my name is Micheon Pearson, the school counselor at Oakdale Elementary. I am blessed to be going into my 7th year as the school counselor at Oakdale.
A little about me:
My family includes my adult son Devin, a graduate of UNC-Charlotte and Kodiak (who is in doggie heaven, but remains in my heart). I have a Paralegal Certification (NSP), BSW (Winthrop University), MA-Counseling (Webster University), and School Counseling Certification (Winthrop University).
I love singing (a little unknown fact), watching football, working sudoku puzzles and traveling. Sleep is also one of my favorite pass times.
My prior work experiences in banking, as a victim’s advocate, and as a social worker, were all about serving others. This is what I believe whole-heartedly, is my purpose here on this earth.
My role as school counselor:
I will promote the development of your child’s academic, career and personal/social interests, through individual, small group and classroom guidance lessons.
It is my belief that every child has his/her own “greatness.“ I will do my very best to encourage every child to believe that they have the ability to not just think locally, but globally. This belief aligns with Oakdale’s mission statement.
Well, all that being said, I look forward to an awesome STEAM-filled year!
