Principal's Corner


I'm Eddie Thomas, and I am honored to serve as the Elementary Principal at Eisenhower Elementary School. With over 25 years of experience in urban education, my journey has been defined by a deep-rooted passion for fostering academic excellence, nurturing social growth, and instilling a love for learning in the hearts of young minds.

 From the outset of my career, I've been committed to making a positive impact on the lives of students in urban settings. My belief in the transformative power of education has been the driving force behind my work, and I have always considered the challenges of urban education as opportunities for growth and positive change.

 At Eisenhower Elementary School, my primary focus is on watching students not only achieve academic excellence but also grow socially to become compassionate and responsible individuals. I believe in a holistic approach to education that goes beyond textbooks and classrooms. It's about creating an environment where every child feels valued and supported in their journey to becoming good humans.

 One of the most rewarding aspects of my role is my love for developing teachers. I understand that the strength of any educational institution lies in the expertise and dedication of its educators. Through mentorship and professional development programs, I aim to empower teachers to excel in their roles, creating a positive and enriching learning experience for our students.

In addition to my administrative duties, you'll often find me actively participating in school events and engaging with students, teachers, and parents alike. Building strong connections within the school community is integral to my leadership philosophy, and I am proud to contribute to the positive and vibrant atmosphere at Eisenhower Elementary School.

 As I reflect on my journey in education, I am grateful for the countless lives I've had the privilege to touch and the opportunities to shape futures. My legacy is not measured solely by academic achievements but by the lasting impact on the holistic development of the students who pass through the doors of Eisenhower Elementary School. I am excited about the continued journey of learning and growth, both for myself and the wonderful community I am privileged to serve.
