Jhory Buskey has been with KIPP Texas Public Schools since 2016. Before coming to KIPP, Jhory taught Theatre and Dance at Westbury High School in Houston ISD for 3 years from 2013-2016. Prior to moving to Houston, Mr. Buskey taught kindergarten, 4th, 5th, and 8th-grade History and English as well as Theatre Arts in the New Orleans Public Schools system from 2009-2013. Mr. Buskey is a graduate of Dillard University (BA) and Tulane University (MFA), and Walden University (MSEd) as well as a proud member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
While at KIPP Generations Collegiate (KGC), Mr. Buskey served in numerous capacities. He has served as a Regional Dance Lead for KTX-Houston, Department Chair for co-curricular teachers, and as a Grade-Level Chair. In 2018 Jhory transitioned into leadership as an Instructional Coach and then as an Assistant Principal, coaching English I, AP English Language, and all Fine Arts. He did what he loved while there for the students, their families, the community, the staff at KGC (Go #JagNation), and continues to do this work for his own little KIPPster at KIPP Shine, Eden.
Mr. Buskey’s leadership is deeply rooted in his belief that students should be equipped with the tools and support to be able to understand their identities, how they influence the world around them, and learn how to respect and learn from the identities of others. He’s truly excited to continue his leadership journey as a school leader and to continue his work with big and little KIPPsters as a Phoenix at KIPP Sharpstown College Prep where he led the efforts of founding the High School extension this past year with the class of 2026! He is deeply invested in connecting more with families, students and staff in the upcoming school year to truly ignite change and investment in the Sharpstown community!
