Principal Dischiavi
Stephanie Dischiavi, Principal
I am Mrs. Stephanie Dischiavi, Principal at Southwest Primary School.
I am originally from Canton, Ohio - home of the Football Hall of Fame.  
I have been with Hickory Public Schools for over twenty years. I began by career as a 
first grade teacher at Oakwood Elementary.  After five years in the classroom, I attended graduate school at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I earned a Master's of School Administration.  I then served one year as Assistant Principal and 8 years as Principal at Jenkins Elementary, 5
 years as principal of Northview Middle School, and now, returning to my elementary roots, as principal of Southwest Primary. I believe in working alongside parents and teachers to maximize the academic, social, and emotional potential of each child while fostering confidence and pride throughout all learning experiences and accomplishments.   
In my spare time I enjoy gardening, cooking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
