Christopher Johnson

Christopher Johnson Principal

I grew up in Lake County (Waukegan, Gurnee, Zion, and Round Lake) and am proud to work for my community as the Principal of Zion Central Middle School. Previously, I served as the most recent Assistant Principal here at ZCMS as well as a 5th Grade Teacher at Shiloh Park Elementary for several years. My mission is to ensure all our students are set up to be successful in life. I would not have gotten to this point in my life without the supportive guidance of my favorite teachers growing up, and it is my responsibility to provide our students the same experience. Families, I want you to know that ZCMS is your home as well, and that all are welcome! I am extremely privileged to be in a position to lead our students alongside you our excellent teachers. At ZCMS, our staff and students hold themselves to high standards through "Excellence Without Exception". Together, we will show them the way!

My name is Tommy Anderson. I am entering my second year in Zion ESD 6 and 15 years of total experience in the Education field, spanning elementary, middle and high school tenures. I have an athletic and coaching background and one of my biggest beliefs is that all students are able to learn. I look forward to continuing my work in Zion ESD 6 and building lasting relationships with students, parents, communities and peers.

Christine Worth Dean Of Students

Going into my second year as the Dean at ZCMS, I am excited to continue to make a change in our students' lives. This is my 16th year in the district and Zion Dist. 6 is a place that I consider home. The journey serving our students and this community has continued to be my purpose. In my personal life I am a proud mom and value my time with family and friends. I am excited about the 2023-2024 school year and the growth we will continue to see in our students.
