Greetings! I am Assistant Principal Maurice A. Simmons and I am excited to be in my third year here at Leesburg Elementary! After serving nine years in the U.S. Navy, I obtained my B.S. degree in Business Administration from Florida A & M University and my M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Saint. Leo University.
I am driven by a deep conviction that ALL students can learn and we must avail ourselves to see ALL of our students achieve academically. I look forward to partnering with you to ensure that these goals are met. If I can be of any service to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I am so excited to be joining the Leesburg Elementary School family as Assistant Principal for Pre-K through 1st grade. I am originally from New York but have been a Florida resident for over 20 years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Educational Studies from Bethune-Cookman University and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from National Louis University.
As a child, it was always a dream to be a teacher. I have a passion for educating students and am looking forward to joining the Leesburg Elementary School faculty and staff where I will continue the mission: “Empowering Students to Become Tomorrow’s Leaders!”
