Kristi has been part of the staff at CTL since 2008 when she began working as a teacher’s aide in the preschool classroom. Her role has expanded to include teaching art to grades 3-8. Before joining our staff, Kristi taught at WELS schools in Fond du Lac, Milwaukee, Lake Mills, and Illinois teaching both grade school and high school. She’s had the privilege of helping students from age three to 60 enjoy art. She earned a degree in elementary education from Dr. Martin Luther College and has taken courses and workshops at UW Whitewater, Wisconsin Lutheran College, Martin Luther College and the Milwaukee Art Museum. Kristi lives in Greenfield with her husband, Paul, also a WELS teacher, and their son, Nathaniel. She enjoys reading, gardening, musical activities, and of course, art.
