Assistant Principal

Kristina McKnight - Assistant Principal


My name is Mrs. Kristina McKnight and I am very excited to be an Assistant Principal at Thompson. I look forward to working with the staff, students, and parents of the Thompson community this year.

I am a graduate of Iowa State University, where I majored in Elementary Education with a Math specialization. In 2007, I received my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from Concordia University.

My educational experience began in St. Charles at Wild Rose Elementary School when I was nine.  I then attended Haines Middle School and St. Charles East High School. After college, I taught for one year in Streamwood in a 5th/6th grade split classroom before I was fortunate enough to open Corron Elementary School as a 4th Grade Teacher. A few years later, I made the switch to 5th grade and also became the Principal’s Assistant.

My husband Eric and I have 4 adorable children. Our two oldest happen to both be named Addison. Our son, Cole is now one and our newest edition is our daughter, Peyton. They help keep my life full of excitement, smiles, and laughter.
