Precious McGhee

Hello, Oakhurst! My name is Precious McGhee and I am absolutely thrilled about becoming a part of the Oakhurst family as your new school counselor. This will be my 18th year as an elementary school counselor and my very first year with City Schools of Decatur. I grew up in Marietta, GA and am proud to call myself a native of the Atlanta metro area. I attended undergraduate at the University of Virginia and graduate school at The Ohio State University. I then attended Jacksonville State University for my Education Specialist degree and have been enjoying my profession ever since. I started my school counseling career in Paulding County and Carroll County and look forward to moving to Decatur "where it's greater." I enjoy listening to different genres of music, traveling, and the arts. I grew up studying ballet and danced with the Atlanta Ballet for several years prior to going to college. My husband Shawn and I have 4 kids between us and we love our blended family of children, ages 19 (Brian), 17 (Jackson), 15 (Donovan), and 11 (Carrington). My dream vacations swing between time in a mountain cabin and toes in the sand at the beach. If you're looking for us, you can always find us at the baseball field with our son or the tennis courts with our daughter. I can't wait to serve the students and community of Oakhurst and celebrate our successes together for the 2021-2022 school year.
