Kristi Lacroix received her degree from Carthage College and her Master’s Degree from National-Louis University. She currently teaches at Lakeview Technology Academy and has been an English teacher for the past 14 years. She was actively involved in the teacher’s union for four years to see for herself what was going on and to see how tax-payer’s money was being spent. Now, while still continuing to hold her teaching position, she is an activist to remove the teachers’ unions from our school system and help in any way possible with education reform in her state. She currently resides in Kenosha, WI with her husband Steve and two daughters, Madelyn and Georgia.
