About Jodi Lay

email address: jlay

My name is Jodi Lay and I am thrilled to be your Assistant Principal here at Leesville Elementary school.

I am originally from western Pennsylvania (Go Steelers!) and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Slippery Rock University of PA. I moved to North Carolina in 1998 and into the middle school science classroom. Since that time I have earned my National Board Certification, and a Master's Degree in Science Education from East Carolina University.

A few years ago, I enrolled at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and completed my Master's Degree in School Administration in 2013. As part of this program, I had the opportunity to work as a full-time principal intern at Reedy Creek Elementary School, and almost immediately recognized the importance of having strong leaders at the elementary level. I look forward to continuing working with the Leesville Elementary learning community. I am confident we can do great things!
