Hello Horn Elementary,
My name is Erika Celeste Vershon, and I am your Horn Elementary school counselor! Please call me Celeste. I am very excited to be a Horn Cardinal and work with you and your child this school year. I graduated from Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana, in 2004 for my undergraduate degree in History and recently completed my master’s degree in school counseling from the University of St. Thomas in Houston. I am currently working on my doctorate of ethical leadership and leadership certification from the University of St. Thomas. In addition, I have seventeen years of teaching experience.
My school counseling philosophy is simple. Building meaningful relationships with students, parents, adults in the school building, and school stakeholders is vital to cultivating an enriching, productive, and safe school environment. Building those relationships is also the key to developing a comprehensive developmental school counseling guidance program.
