ST. THOMAS MORE PARISH SCHOOL WILL BE 50 YEARS OLD THIS COMING SCHOOL YEAR!
MEET OUR NEW PRINCIPAL, MS. KRISTEN THOME

MEET OUR NEW PRINCIPAL, MS. KRISTEN THOME It is with great excitement that I am able to serve St. Thomas More Parish School in my role as principal. I have been blessed to have worked in three wonderful schools in the Archdiocese of Galveston/Houston and I am looking forward to joining this community.

My family moved to Texas in 1972 and I have been a proud Houstonian ever since. I grew up in Southwest Houston and graduated from Westbury High School. I then attended The University of St. Thomas, where I earned a B.A. in General Studies with an emphasis in English and Philosophy. I returned to UST in 1997 to attend graduate school and received my Masters in Education, followed by completion of coursework required for Educational Administration and Leadership.

I began my career in education in 1999 at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School. During my seven years there, I taught second grade and first grade. I thoroughly enjoyed working with other teachers committed to Catholic education. In 2006 I had the opportunity to join John Paul II Catholic School as the Assistant Principal for PK3-8 grade. I then joined the team at Northwoods Catholic School as Principal in 2009.

As your principal, I look forward to getting to know and work with all members of the
St. Thomas More community. I welcome any and all input, and my door is always open to discuss any successes or concerns you may have.

In Christ,
Kristen Thome
