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.

Dr. Thomas D. Rogers named to 2022-23 Broad Fellows for the Fellowship for Public Education Leadership by The Broad Center at Yale School of Management

The Fellowship for Public Education Leadership is an executive leadership program run by The Broad Center at Yale SOM for senior-level public education leaders from across the country who are dedicated to strengthening public school systems and the communities they serve. 

Twenty-three senior-level public education leaders from across the U.S. make up the second cohort of the Fellowship for Public Education Leadership. Starting in June, the Fellows will gather four times over 10 months for weeklong modules at Yale SOM designed to expose them to leading management research and skills that can be applied to the public school systems in which they work. The program also places an emphasis on peer-to-peer learning within the cohort and with leading practitioners in the field. Fellows leverage these learnings as they drive transformative work happening in urban school districts, charter networks, and state education agencies that advances equity and excellence for all students
