Mrs. Barbara Mercado

My name is Barbara Mercado.  I am the School Counselor at Buies Creek Elementary.  I am happy to say that this is my 6th year working at BCES!  I received my M.Ed in School Counseling from Campbell University.  I am blessed to work with outstanding students who teach me something new everyday! My husband and I have a beautiful daughter and a rambunctious golden doodle named Marlie.  My daughter and Marlie keep me busy but they make life a lot of fun!  When I am not spending time with my family my focus is on counseling.  I enjoy working with the students at Buies Creek.  I strive to create a counseling program that meets the social, emotional and academic needs of every student.
