About Heather
Heather

This fall I will be teaching 7/8 writing, Biology, and dual credit English Composition 1&2.

After many years as a homeschooling mom, I started teaching at Cornerstone two years ago. I enjoy it immensely! As nerdy as it sounds, I love to learn! What an amazing blessing from God to be able to study the world around us and learn more about Him.
I attended Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Science Education in 2008. Amazingly, I taught only one year in a public school before I had the blessing of staying home with my oldest daughter. I re-started my formal education two summers ago when I took an online course and became registered as an IEW instructor.
With God's help, I am finishing my 10th year of homeschooling my three daughters. Living and learning with my husband and our daughters in the countryside of southern Indiana is one of the greatest blessings of my life. When I'm not teaching or homeschooling, I enjoy baking, cooking, gardening, and reading. I am looking forward to the honor of teaching new classes and new students in the fall of 2024!
