Debbie Leonard, Assistant Principal
Welcome to Mathews Elementary! I am so excited to join the Bulldog family, and I look forward to supporting the amazing faculty, staff, students, and parents as we "challenge all students to think, dream, believe, and achieve to their fullest potential by being ready, respectful, and responsible."
A little bit about me:
I am married to Chris Leonard. We are proud parents of Nicholas, a senior at Clemson University, and William, a senior at Greenwood High.
The 2020-2021 school year marks my 24th year in education. Graduating with a BS in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University in 1993, I taught Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades in North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, and South Carolina. This will be my 16th year in Greenwood District 50. After teaching 4th and 5th grades at Merrywood Elementary and obtaining my master's degree in Instructional Technology from Walden University, I spent the last 6 years as an Instructional Technology Coach for Gwd50. During that time, I completed my Educational Leadership degree with Western Governor's University.
