Mrs. Lacey Peckham, Principal

Hello! I am Lacey Peckham and I proudly serve as principal at Middle Creek High School. I am a former Spanish teacher, with many years of experience at both the middle and high school levels in WCPSS.  During my tenure as an assistant principal, I had the pleasure of serving as the Assistant Principal of Instruction at Middle Creek High School, and was selected as the WCPSS Assistant Principal of the Year in 2014.  It was during my time at MCHS as an AP that I set the goal to eventually return and lead the school as the principal.  After serving as an Assistant principal at Sanderson HS, Martin GT Magnet Middle School and MCHS, I was appointed principal at Martin GT Magnet Middle School. I served the amazing Martin school staff and community for 5 years before being named as the principal here at “The Creek”.  I love getting to be a part of this #StrongStable and am proud of the work we do daily to provide quality learning and extracurricular experiences for our students.  When not at school, I enjoy reading and supporting the NC State Wolfpack and Carolina Hurricanes! Thank you to our amazing staff, families and community members for the unwavering support of our students, each and every day.

Ms. Laura Megronigle, Assistant Principal of Instruction (12th)

Welcome to Middle Creek!  I am originally from Pennsylvania, where I taught Special Education at the middle school level for 7 years and completed my Masters in Teaching and Curriculum and Administrative Certification at Penn State University, Go LIONS!  Once we moved to Raleigh, I taught special education for one year at Martin Middle School and then moved to Middle Creek in 2012 and it has been my home ever since.  Before becoming an AP, I was a Special Education Teacher and Department Chair here in the #STRONGStable.  I love attending all of the events at school and cheering on our Mustangs.  However, when I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, going to her events or games, taking my dog, Nittany, for a walk or just reading a good book.

Mr. Aaron Baer, Assistant Principal (Students 9th-11th, Do-La)

Goooood morning! I am originally from Michigan but hated the cold so I moved to the south. I received a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and a Masters in school Administration from Central Michigan University. I taught middle school science at East Lee Middle School and was an assistant principal at Harnett Central Middle School before coming to Middle Creek High School.  Outside of school I enjoy going to the gym, coaching and playing Ultimate Frisbee, traveling, and spending time with my friends.

Hey there! I am a proud native of the All-American city of Fayetteville, North Carolina, where I graduated as a 4th generation student from the historic E.E.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, listening to a good audiobook or podcast and being involved in the community through nonprofit work and my fraternity. I look forward to serving you and your family here at The Creek!
