Mrs. Courtney Shepherd

Hello and Welcome Back!

My name is Courtney Shepherd and I am thrilled to be the new school counselor at Hairston Middle School. This year, I will serve as the school counselor for students in grades 6-8 whose last names begin with M-Z.

I am originally from Greensboro, NC. I lived in Maryland for the past 5 years and recently moved back to be closer to family. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful children whom I cherish dearly. I have been in education for 15 years and a school counselor for the past 8 years. I attended North Carolina Central University and North Carolina A&T State University. I take pride in attending two of the best HBCUs!   

My role as your school counselor is to support you with academic, social/emotional, and career development needs. This is going to be a different but fun year filled with learning, growing, and a lot of new adventures. 


Best Wishes,

Mrs. Shepherd
