Julian Gire, School Psychologist and Associate Director, began working at Morningside Academy in the summer of 2006. But the path to Morningside was a long one spanning the Pacific Ocean and Cascade Mountains. Julian was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, and after graduating from high school he moved to Cheney, Washington where he attended Eastern Washington University. While at EWU he earned a B.S. in Applied Developmental Psychology with an emphasis in School Counseling. Julian loved EWU so much that he stayed another three years to earn a Masters of Science in School Psychology and currently holds the designation of Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP). In his free time Julian enjoys getting out into the garden, BBQ’n with friends, and playing paintball.
