Ms. Petra Leonard

It is an honor to be a part of the Thompson High School Family(THS)! I am filled with enthusiasm and excitement to serve as the 9th grade Assistant Principal at Thompson High School! This marks my 15th year in the Education Profession. Prior to coming to THS, I served students outside of the classroom as an assistant principal, curriculum resource teacher and technology teacher. My classroom experience includes: pre-kindergarten, second and fifth grade. I am very grateful to have this opportunity to expand my career at Thompson High School.

My goal as Assistant Principal is to provide leadership that will add to the district and school culture by supporting the mission of Alabaster City Schools. It is my goal to continue to add value to the instructional leadership team at Thompson High School. As an educator and instructional leader, I believe in approaching all situations with a student-centered, team approach.  Doing what is best for children is critically important, and this enables children to grow and excel in all areas.  

I look forward to meeting each of you!
