Thomas Davis is a dedicated and pragmatic educator with a strong sense of commitment to creating a positive learning environment that supports and encourages students to do their best. 

As a social science teacher and coach at Reed-Custer High School for over 30 years, his emphasis as a teacher has always been the success of all students.  “We are in it together, their successes are my successes, their failures are my failures, but we always work together for everyone to succeed.”  

During his tenure at Reed-Custer High School Thomas taught: United States history, world history, government, philosophy, A/P history, global studies, in addition to being department chair and a member of the Academic Committee.  As social science department chair, he has written curriculum maps to guide course instruction - - guides aligning to Common Core and Illinois Learning standards.
