Tyneasha Rogers-Banks

Ms. Banks has been involved in education for over 10 years. Ms. Banks’ educational credentials include her Bachelor's degree in Business Management from Grambling State University and Elementary Education from Calumet College of St. Joseph. Also, she earned two Master’s degrees from Indiana University in Business Administration and Educational Leadership. Currently, she is pursuing her Doctorate in Organizational Leadership at Argosy University. Ms. Banks believes that all children can learn but each learns in a different way and at different rates. She believes that with hard work and perseverance we can touch each child in a special way. Keeping the atmosphere positive is the key to success as well as keeping the lines of communication open among staff, students, and parents. Ms. Banks feels that teamwork is the ultimate way a school can be successful in reaching the goal of helping a child attain his or her full potential. Ms. Banks is a very visible principal and she states that the best part of her job is visiting the students in all areas of the school. She gets to know every student and every student gets to know her. She is very excited and honored to serve Indianapolis Lighthouse East.
