Precious McGhee

Hello, Oakhurst! This will be my 21st year as an elementary school counselor and my fourth year at Oakhurst. 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 the school counseling profession ever since 2001. 

I served as a school counselor in Paulding and Carroll Counties prior to coming to the City Schools of Decatur and am so glad I moved 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 School of Ballet from preschool until I graduated high school as well as performed with the Atlanta Ballet prior to going to college.

I have two wonderful children, Donovan, who is a freshman and baseball player at Morehouse College and Carrington, who is a freshman at Decatur High School. 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 my son or the softball field with my daughter. I can't wait to serve the students and community of Oakhurst again and celebrate our successes together for the 2024-2025 school year.
