A Message From Ms. BlanchardI am the proud principal at R. Brown McAllister STEM Elementary! I have been an educator in the public school arena for 18 years and joined the RBM STEM Bobcats in 2020. Before joining Cabarrus County Schools, I worked in both Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and Union County Public Schools. I served as the principal at Matthews Elementary (2014-2020) and Weddington Elementary (2011-2014), as assistant principal at Waxhaw Elementary (2009-2011) and as assistant principal, reading specialist, and teacher at Benton Heights Elementary School of the Arts (2003-2009).
My education began here in Cabarrus County, where I was born and raised. I later received undergraduate degrees in elementary education and reading education from Wingate University. I have also completed my master's degree in educational leadership at Winthrop University. Together my wonderful husband, Matthew, and I are raising our two most precious blessings, our sons. Both of our boys attend Cabarrus County Schools. Jaxson is in middle school and Malachi is a Bobcat. In my time away from school, much of our family time is spent serving at our church, reading and running together, and making memories with our close-knit family!
As a teacher and a leader, I have always felt strongly that, given the time and opportunity, all students can succeed. Because of this deep-seated belief, I will work to make sure that the needs of all students are met through the Bobcat Bridge. This year at R. Brown we will focus on building bridges, bridging gaps, and becoming the bridge!
I look forward to working with the entire Bobcat community. Thank you for choosing Cabarrus County Schools and R. Brown McAllister STEM Elementary.Jessica BlanchardJessica BlanchardPrincipal
