Mrs. Stephanie Leonard


Welcome to McGee’s Crossroads Elementary School, home of the Patriots!  My name is Stephanie Leonard and it is my honor to serve as principal of this wonderful school.  Each year it is a priority of mine to build relationships with students, parents and staff. I have been in education for 22 years and began my career as a high school science teacher. Since that point I have been an Assistant Principal at two elementary schools and have worked in the Curriculum Department for the district for 5 years before coming to McGee’s.

I am originally from Four Oaks and graduated from South Johnston High School.  After attending UNC Chapel Hill (B.S. in Biology) and NCSU (B.S. in Secondary Science Education), I returned to South Johnston to teach science.  While teaching, I obtained my National Boards for Science Education. I returned to school a few years later for my Masters in Administration from ECU through the Principal Fellows Program.

My husband Brian and I have been married 24 years and we have three wonderful daughters, ages 22, 19, and 8.  In my free time, these three keep me very busy spending time with them and attending their activities.

I believe teachers and school staff have the power to change the lives of students each and every day, and we want to make sure we are a positive influence that they can carry with them throughout their lives.  I look forward to working with the students, parents and staff this year as we celebrate all the amazing accomplishments to come! #patriotproud
