Mrs. Stacie McGuirt
My name is Stacie McGuirt and I have never been more humbled and honored to be appointed principal of Beaverdam Elementary with a start date of August 10, 2022. I look forward to joining this wonderful staff as we work together to ensure the success of every student, every day.
I was born in Ohio and moved to Raleigh when I started middle school. After graduating from Leesville Road High School, I attended Western Carolina University where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree. I started my teaching career as a fifth grade teacher and I soon realized how passionate I was about using the best strategies and differentiated lessons to grow my students. I continued my education at North Carolina Central University where I earned my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I spent 12 years teaching at the elementary level. During my time in the classroom, I taught fifth, fourth, and second grades, as well as kindergarten. I served as a mentor for beginning teachers and enjoyed collaborating with my team on how best to serve our students. In the Fall of 2013, I became an Instructional Resource Teacher at Reedy Creek Elementary School which prepared me to pursue administration.
I completed my school administration licensure in June of 2018 and started my administrative career at Lufkin Road Middle School. I served as the assistant principal at Lufkin for four years and during that time was able to support all three grade levels. While I am sad to be leaving the Lufkin community that I have grown to love, I am very excited to start building and growing new relationships with you all at Beaverdam.
On a personal note, I have been married to my husband, Regan, for over 20 years and together we have three beautiful children. Carson will start his freshman year of high school this fall; Claire has just begun fifth grade and Coen is preparing for readiness kindergarten. On top of that, we have a stubborn French Bulldog named Bromaine who we enjoy taking to the beach.
Please know how serious and committed I am to serving our students, staff, families, and the greater community. I look forward to embarking on this blessed opportunity and am beyond excited to meet you all in a few days. Please join me in the Media Center on Friday, August 5th at 10 am for an informal meet and greet.
Your Proud Principal,
