Dr. Kristine Hillmann

My name is Dr. Kristine Hillmann and I will be the principal of St. Elizabeth of the Trinity School .  I am so excited to be a part of this new school and I am looking forward to getting to know all of the staff, students and families of the school and parish.  

I have been in education for over 25 years and started my teaching career at Holy Cross School in Deerfield.  While at Holy Cross, I taught 5th through 8th grade both ELA and math.   After six years there, I married and moved to Colorado where my husband was stationed in the Army.  In Colorado, I taught Junior High math and reading for three years before moving back to the Chicagoland area. 

Upon our return, I was hired to teach 8th grade math and science in Skokie.    Six years ago, I received my Doctorate in Leadership as well as my Type 75 and became a Principal within the Archdiocese of Chicago for five years.  After taking a year off, I am happy to be returning to the Archdiocese at St. Elizabeth!

As for my personal life, I am married and have four children, three of whom are at a Catholic school in our neighborhood (3rd, 6th and 7th grade) as well as a freshman in high school.  My husband is still in the military, but as a reservist so he does his work only one weekend a month – unless he is called up for deployment (again).  And, I cannot forget our lab mix, Goldie, who we rescued a few years ago. 

I am looking forward to getting into the school and getting right down to work.  Hopefully, this will be possible come July 1.  I am excited to be working at St. Elizabeth and showing the community all that we have to offer!
