Mr. Gary McPherson
I grew up in the West Park area of Cleveland. I graduated from John Marshall in 1975. I attended Oral Roberts University from 1975-1979 and graduated with a Bachelor's of Music Education. I taught in Oklahoma for a few years. When I moved back home, I met my wife. After dating three months, we were married. We moved to Illinois, where I taught for five years. We moved back to Cleveland after the birth of our daughter Meagan. I worked a few different places. However, I always wanted to teach in Cleveland and 'pay it forward' as thanks for the great education I received. I started teaching in 1996 at Walton School. In 2016, I transferred to Michael R. White STEM school.
