Welcome to Quail Run Elementary School, where all students Believe, Achieve, and Succeed! My name is Cheryl Thomas and I am honored to serve our students, staff, parents, and community as the principal/learning leader of this wonderful school.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the State University of New York at Cortland, in Cortland, NY. I received my Masters degree from Georgia Southwestern as a Reading Specialist, and additionally I received both my Specialist and Doctoral degrees in Educational Leadership from Argosy University located in Sarasota, Florida.
I grew up on a dairy farm in Brockport, NY which is located in upstate New York. I was a flight attendant for American Airlines for three years after graduating from undergraduate school. After flying with American Airlines for three years, I then went on to teach kindergarten and third grade at Miller Elementary School, and then second grade at Eagle Springs Elementary School.
I am married to Ronnie Thomas who is an Ag teacher at Houston County High School. We have two beautiful children, Grace is 17 years old and Ronnie is 14. Grace is a senior at Houston County High School this year and Ronnie is a freshman. I enjoy spending as much time with my family as possible, reading, gardening, traveling, attending FFA cow shows and activities to support the Houston County FFA, and continually supporting Houston County High School athletics and the drama department. Go Bears!!!
I look forward to meeting the needs of all students in our building on a daily basis, continuing the tradition of excellence, and achieving our ultimate vision of leading the state in high student achievement.
