Stephanie Stroupe, Assistant Principal

Hello Johnston Elementary School Family. My name is Stephanie Stroupe and I am excited to be your assistant principal. This is my ninth year in education. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Western Carolina University. 

Before coming to Buncombe County Schools, I taught English at a bi-lingual school in Honduras, at a local private school in the Asheville area, and fourth grade in Haywood County. I began my career in Buncombe County at Pisgah Elementary School as a Special Education Teacher. I later moved into a first grade position at PES before moving to Johnston Elementary to complete my administrative internship. 

As a native of Buncombe County, I enjoy spending my weekends enjoying our beautiful mountains with my husband.
