Welcome! I am Dr. Sukari Thomas and have been selected as the new principal of Blackshear Elementary School.
I am a native Houstonian. I grew up in the North side of Houston. Kindergarten-8th grade, I went to school in North Forest ISD. I graduated from the High School for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice in Houston ISD. I’m a proud graduate of Wiley College. I received my Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education with an Emphasis in Social Studies. I’m a two-time graduate of Texas Southern University. I earned my Master’s in Education Administration and a Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction.
I have the honor and privilege of being a wife and mother. I’m married to Rodney Thomas and we have two amazing children, Townsen and Rodney, II.
I have been serving Scholars and Educators since 2000. I taught in the classroom for six years and have been in instructional leadership since 2006. I firmly believe that I’m “Leading Tomorrow Today” and that it is our duty and obligation to make a positive impact in our community and world. I’m extremely honored to be the proud Principal of Blackshear Elementary. It is truly remarkable to work with educators who love kids and want to ignite the scholars’ dreams and fuel their passion. Blackshear is a beacon in the community that lights the pathway today, tomorrow, and beyond.
