Principal Principles

I, Stephanie McConnell, serve as an elementary principal located in Northeast Texas. I started my journey as a school leader in 2005. I’m inspired to bring value to other school leaders through my love of leading and teaching. It has always been my aim to create a school culture and climate where students, teachers, and community members feel welcomed and a part of the school. In order to have a great school, it starts with me- the school leader. I believe in doing the work that I love. I hope to inspire you along the way.  

When I’m not at school, I am a blogger and content creator. I love sharing a day in the life of a principal on the blog, Principal Principles.  

Stephanie and her husband, Brent, have three children- Ashley, Aaron, and Allison.

Pickled Principal

I, Christine Bedre, serve as an assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction located in East Texas. In 2014 I began my educational leadership adventure. My passion is to assist the growth of newcomers in both teaching and leadership roles by developing best teaching practices, curricula choices, and data assessments to support authentic student learning. I hope you enjoy my vision and can use it as you create your dynamic school culture.  

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my sweet family and watching my young children grow. Additionally, I like to share curriculum with other educators through my blog, The Pickled Principal.  

Christine and her husband, Brian, have two children - Buck and Brighton.
