Mrs. Metcalf

Katherine Metcalf, a life-long resident of Shreveport, Louisiana, is a graduate of Louisiana State University Shreveport earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  As a classroom teacher of second grade, she studied the behaviors and motives of her students.  She became so intrigued with the results of her study motivating her to attend Louisiana Tech in pursuit of a Master’s Degree in Social and Emotional Learning and Counseling.  After earning that degree and at the onset of her Counseling career, she employed many of the practices in the Louisiana Counseling Model with success.  Mrs. Metcalf continued learning and has earned 30 hours of additional education and training in Administration and Supervision.  She is a National Board Certified Counselor and a National Board Certified School Counselor.  She is also a Trust-Based Relational Intervention Facilitator in Caddo Public Schools.


As a proud grandmother of two, Cory Paul, Jr. (6) and Courtney Marie (4), she has practiced meeting the individual demands of each.  As handed down from two generations of educators is our belief that all children are unique.  Coupled with this belief is that all children in their uniqueness have different needs that must be met.  Building the Judson’s Counseling Program around the Louisiana Counseling Model provides success with this challenge.  The tools that are used are directly from this model.  Her goal is to meet each student individually, filling each of their buckets with “what is requested though not asked” strengthening each socially and emotionally throughout their educational journeys.
