Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Julie McPherson
My name is Julie McPherson and I am excited for another great year at Highland! This is my 28th year of teaching. I have been teaching at Highland since the doors opened in 2007. I have teaching experience in grades four, five, and six. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and a minor degree in music from UNC-Greensboro. After teaching a few years, I earned my AIG certification from High Point University. It was at that time I found my niche of working exclusively with the gifted population. My husband is a history teacher at Eastern Alamance High School. I have one son who is a junior at Wake Forest University. When I am not teaching, I love playing tennis, reading, and spending time with my family. We recently added Millie, a Boston Terrier, to our family.
