Kari-Lynn Knight

Kari-Lynn Knight was thrilled to join the MZCS family and commUNITY in the fall of 2023. She earned her degree in Neuropsychology from UNH Manchester in 2022 with a concentration in Child Life and Political Economy. Kari-Lynn has held various teaching positions through the years sharing her love of Jesus, music, theatre, brains, and science. As a single mom of eight kiddos she focused many years on homeschooling and raising her family. Her journey towards becoming a Child Life Specialist took an unexpected and blessed turn when God led her to enroll Gideon (MZCS class of 2030), Ephraim (MZCS class of 2032) and Marjorie (MZCS class of 2034), and found a God-ordained place for her as well, as the HS Science teacher. Shortly after school began her son, Nehemiah (MZCS class of 2025) joined the commUNITY as he was so impressed and impacted by the family that is Mount Zion. Outside of school Kari-Lynn loves adventuring with her family in the mountains and at the ocean, volunteering in the Elliot Child Life Department, and is overjoyed to be merging families with her fiancé, Adam, in the Spring of 2024.
