Meet Our Assistant Superintendent!
Thomas D. Rogers, Ed.D, is a lifelong Memphian and has spent the past 20 years in public education. During his time in public education, he has served in various capacities such as substitute teacher, teacher, assistant principal, and principal. While serving as an elementary urban school principal, the school received the following recognition as a result of improving, sustaining, and accelerating students’ academic achievement: Effective Practice Incentive Community (EPIC) twice, Reward School Status, and ultimately, closing the achievement gap. He earned a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Christian Brothers University in Memphis, TN., and a Doctor of Education from Union University in Jackson, TN.
Dr. Rogers has matriculated to the District office in Memphis-Shelby County Schools, in the Office of Schools, where he serves as Assistant Superintendent for IZone 2.0/Priority Schools. In this role, he coaches and supervises principal supervisors, content managers, and highly specialized advisors in a portfolio of assigned schools. Additionally, he collaborates with District officials, brokers services for schools, and serves as a liaison and thought partner on various committees.
He is most humbled by his recent accomplishment to be recommended and accepted to Atlantic’s National Academy for Superintendents, a national comprehensive leadership development program established to prepare cohorts of leaders in education for the academic, political, legal, and logistical rigors inherent to K-12 education. His leadership voice is heard as a presenter at local and national conferences.
