Mrs. Marquita Thompson

Dear Royal Students and Families,


My name is Marquita Thompson and I am honored to be joining the Royal Family as the Junior and Senior Dean of Students.  I have been with School District U-46 since 2013, serving as an English teacher at Streamwood High School and Dream Academy.  I am thrilled to enter the 2021-2022 school year with Larkin High School as my new home.


I received my undergraduate degree in English with a minor in Black Studies from Northern Illinois University.  After graduating, I immediately began working on my master's degree in Secondary Education at Chicago State University, while working as a Residential Behavioral Specialist for a children's group home.  I recently received my 2nd master's degree from Concordia University in Educational Leadership.  


   I am passionate about promoting equity within schools and I will strive to ensure that all students have the tools they need to be successful.  As Dean of Students, it is my responsibility to foster a safe and supportive school environment through restorative practices.  I am here to support you in every way, so never hesitate to reach out to me.  I look forward to meeting you all soon.
