Dr. Stephanie McGuire 

I am filled with excitement to join the amazing learning community at Goshen Post Elementary as Dean. As a leading elementary school in innovative practices and a reputation for excellence, I am honored to become a Gator!  

Before coming to Goshen Post, I was at William & Mary earning my doctorate in Educational Policy, Planning & Leadership in K-12 Administration. My research focused on joy in education, and I cannot wait to share and spread joy at Goshen Post. My administrative internship experience led me to serve and learn from a variety of districts across the state of Virginia at all school levels. 

Prior to graduate school, I taught Kindergarten for seven years in Fairfax County. My teaching mantra was “My job is to teach my students. My calling is to love them.” I truly treasured my time in the classroom and am elated to now serve in a leadership capacity.  

I am a loyal member of the Tribe, earning my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, Master of Arts in Education degree in Elementary Education, and Doctor of Philosophy degree in Educational Leadership, all from William & Mary. In my free time, you can find me cheering on the Tribe and the New York Giants football teams, finding the ultimate donut in town, baking cupcakes, or running on the local trails. 

I firmly believe in servant leadership, so please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. I am “Committed to achieving excellence through authentic, rigorous experiences for every child, every day!” and look forward to a fantastic year ahead- learning, growing, and flourishing together!
