     Greetings Leesburg Elementary Family,
    After spending the past two years as one of the assistant principals at Sawgrass Bay Elementary, I am thrilled to join this great school family for this 2016-2017 year! I am originally from Plant City, Florida and have resided in the Lake County area for the past 14 years. After nine years in the U.S. Navy and several years working in the financial services industry, I began my career in education as a 5th grade teacher at Eustis Heights Elementary.  Here I am, nine years later blessed with the wonderful opportunity to serve as one of your administrators.
    I am passionate about our students and my desire is that ALL of our students maximize their potential. They can ALL learn, and if we coalesce around this cause together, Leesburg Elementary will soar to great heights.
    I am a proponent of servant leadership and if there is anything I can do to serve you, please let me know. 
    Maurice A. Simmons
    Assistant Principal
