With a passion for education and a firm belief in the potential of every student, I am committed to fostering a positive and nurturing learning environment for all. I understand the unique needs and challenges that middle school students face, and I am devoted to guiding them towards academic success, personal growth, and overall well-being.

I am dedicated to providing students with the best possible educational opportunities, and I seek to empower students to reach their full potential. I believe in cultivating a growth mindset and encouraging students to embrace challenges, learn from setbacks, and develop resilience.


Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in your child’s educational experience at LCMS. I welcome your conversation and positive input throughout the year ahead and look forward to connecting with you in continuing a school culture of positivity and engagement! Together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of our students and our school community.

Greetings Bobcats Family!

I am thrilled to embark on another amazing school year at Louisa County Middle School!  My first year with LCPS was remarkable and the new year promises exciting opportunities for learning, growth and building lasting friendships.  With a fantastic team of teachers and staff assembled and ready to welcome our Bobcats, I am looking forward to making the most of every moment and achieving great things together. 

As we begin the 2024-2025 school year, let us celebrate our past successes and look to build upon them.  It is my belief that every student that walks through our doors at Louisa County Middle School has gifts and talents to transform the world into a better place.  Through positive relationship building with our students, parents and community, I want to play a part in shaping the future of our young people while they are here at Louisa County Middle School and beyond. 

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions as we start this journey towards excellence.

I am so excited to begin my second year in Louisa County Middle School as an administrator.  It is a privilege to be working with such a caring and dedicated staff and community. I look forward to assisting in the great work that is going forward here every day. I am coming to Louisa from the mountains of Southwest VA where I was a “Bobcat” in Radford for most of my life. This school year marks my 28th year as a dedicated educator. I have taught many subjects such as English, Theatre Arts, and  Journalism to students in grades 7-12. I have also served as the Division Director of Testing as well as the Truancy Coordinator.

I am and always will be a lifelong learner. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in English Education from Radford University in 1994, a Master’s degree in creative writing from Hollins University in 2000, and Longwood University in 2019 where I received my Educational Leadership Degree. I am also very proud to have received my National Board Certification in 2013. 

I am very passionate about the 5 Cs of education. Technology and project-based learning have changed how teachers are thinking about instruction and assessment in today’s classrooms. Having a mindset that embodies the 5Cs is critical for our students to successfully participate in an evolving workforce. 

The achievement I am the most proud of is raising my two daughters, both of whom will be attending VCU in the fall.

I look forward to working with each and every one of you. Please let me know if I can support you in any way.  I have never been more excited to join such a dedicated team of educators and such a warm and welcoming community.

Greetings Bobcats,

My name is George A. Stanley II - referred to by most as "Coach Stanley”. I am originally from Montclair, NJ, and I have lived in Virginia since 1998, when I started college at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. I received a B.A. in Sociology (2002) and a M.Ed (2003) from UVa. I was a member of the UVa Football team from 1998-2001. 

I began my career at LCHS as a Special Education teacher in 2007. I also served as the Assistant A.D. from 2011-2014. I earned a Special Education endorsement from Virginia Commonwealth University (2010) and an Administration & Supervision Program endorsement from Arkansas State University (2013).  

I had the distinct pleasure of serving as the Director of Athletics at Louisa County High School from 2014-2023. During my tenure as AD, I earned the Certified Athletic Administrator (CAA) certification through the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA), and I am also a proud Life Member of the Virginia Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (VIAAA). 

The 2024-2025 school year marks year #2 as the 8th-grade Assistant Principal at Louisa County Middle School. The opportunities to educate and build relationships with our staff & students, their parents, and the great Louisa County community have been a dream come true and I would not trade it for the world. Doing right by our students and watching them develop and grow into young adults is fulfilling every day!! Thank you for your belief and support through these great years.
