A 1990 graduate of Syracuse University and ex-copywriter, Kerri Thompson has been a part of the Lane Tech family since 1998 when she arrived to teach American Literature to sophomores and British Literature to juniors. In addition to teaching in those early years, Mrs. Thompson also coached the Lane Tech softball and gymnastics teams. From 2008-2015, Mrs. Thompson was English Department Chair. In 2015, she marked 20 years in CPS and it was time to get another degree! She applied to Chicago Public School’s Chicago Leadership Collaborative where she worked as a Resident Principal at Gunsaulus Scholastic Academy on the city’s southwest side while also enrolled in Dominican University’s Masters program for Education Leadership. She earned her Master’s in Leadership in 2016 and worked as an Assistant Principal at Thomas Kelly College Prep. She missed the northside and Lane, so in 2017, she returned to her roots at Lane Tech and became the Director of Assessment and Programming for 3 years, until an opening became available for Assistant Principal, her dream job. Currently, Mrs K Thompson supports coaches and student athletes in the Lane Tech Athletics program and oversees Social Science, Physical Education, Health, JROTC, and Quick Start.
Mrs K Thompson is also a wife and mother of 3 almost-grown children. She is a Peloton and exercise enthusiast, mama to three dogs, and loves cooking, gardening, and traveling to see her kids.
Go, Lane, Go!!
