Mrs. Stacey Gillette

"I began my educational career as a high school English teacher in Norfolk, Va (1997-2001). The Marine Corps brought my family to Jacksonville, NC in 2001, where I taught English at Northside High School in Onslow County from 2001-2008. After two years in San Diego, CA, I returned to Onslow County where I began my administrative internship at Richlands High School (2011-2013). In 2013, I accepted my first administrative position as Assistant Principal at Jacksonville High School in Onslow County. I served as AP at JHS from 2013-2019. In 2019, I became the Assistant Principal at Heritage Elementary School in Onslow County, where I remained until taking on a new role as the Coordinator of the Adult High School program at Coastal Carolina Community College. In 2021, I joined the Craven County Schools family as the Assistant Principal at Havelock Middle School."
I am excited to begin my principalship at H.J. MacDonald Middle School this upcoming school year, and I am looking forward to using my professional experience to contribute to the CCS and H.J. MacDonald Middle School team. I love the work of serving students, so I am thrilled about this opportunity.
