Principal Kizzy Thomas-Luke
It is my honor and privilege to serve as only the fifth principal of Kate Bell Elementary in its forty-three year existence.
I began my career in education as a kindergarten teacher at Kashmere Gardens Elementary in 2000. I have taught kinder, first, second, fifth, and had the honor to open a new arrival center for sixth, seventh and eighth graders new to the USA. I designed instruction and trained teachers as an Instructional Coach for Math & Science. I was an Assistant principal for seven years and was recognized as the district's August 2020 Excellence in Leadership recipient for my turnaround work and leadership. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Houston - Downtown. I have a Masters degree in Education Administration from Prairie View A&M University as well as a Masters degree in Curriculum & Instruction also from Prairie View A & M University. I hold four Texas Educator certifications: PK-6, ESL PK-4, Generalist 4-8, and Principal PK-12.
I encourage you to join the CougarPRIDE as we are on the prowl to success!
