Hello My Name Is...


Mrs. Christine Knight


Mrs. Knight

Welcome to Benton Grade School

I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Christine Knight. I have been married for thirty years to Rick Knight and we have two children.  Ryan is 27 and is the Director of Vocal Music & Theater at Mt. Vernon High School in Indiana. He is also the Assistant Chorus Conductor for the Evansville Philharmonic.   He continues to make me so very proud as he works with high school students in a variety venues to instill a love of fine arts.   Courtney is 24 years old and is an Imagineer for Disney World in Orlando, FL.  She has worked on so many interesting projects while having a blast living her dream. Luckily, she allows me to live vicariously through her pictures of all those adventures.   Rick is retired from the U.S. Marshal's Service and spends his free time working with several law enforcement agencies, The Benton Civic Center, and Continental Investigative Services.  He enjoys all sorts of outdoor activities and helps me with all of my 'honey-do' lists I have.  We also have a very important member of the family who eagerly awaits our arrival back home each day.  Zoe is our Shorkie.  She is 10 years old and doesn't realize she is a dog. If you visit my classroom, you will see how much Zoe has inspired my teaching world.   I enjoy my family and love spending time and lots of laughs with them.

 I have been teaching for over 20 years  (Title I Reading, Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade and Third Grade). I am very excited about my role here at BGS.  As the Title 1 RTI Reading Coordinator, I oversee all of our reading students in K-4.  That means I get to organize all of our readers and many of the programs we use to help each child achieve his/her potential in reading and writing.  I have always loved to read and so I am eager to get busy helping others learn to love reading as well.    

When trying to reach me during the year, please e-mail me at cknight@benton47.org  or call the school office and leave a message at 618-438-718 ext 2108. I will respond as soon as possible.

Let's have a great year!

Mrs. Christine Knight
