Principal, General George McCall School
School District of Philadelphia
2015 Neubauer Fellow

“I became a Neubauer Fellow to participate in high quality, relevant professional development to enhance my practice as a school leader. Additionally, I was eager to have exposure to other principals from all types of schools in Philadelphia in order to develop a network of peers that engage in collaborative learning and share various perspectives of how to effectively lead teachers and impact student learning.”

Stephanie has served as the principal of General George McCall School since 2016. Under her leadership, McCall School received a 2017 U.S. Department of Education National Blue Ribbon School award. In addition, the school received the top “Model” designation on the School District of Philadelphia School Progress Report for three consecutive years.
