HEATHER GETSON

Instructor

 

Heather Getson graduated from Western Michigan University with a teaching degree in early childhood education with a minor in Science.  For 12 years she taught in public school, teaching grades from Kindergarten to 6th grade.  When her children were ready for school, she decided to come home full- time and homeschool her own kids, which she has been doing for the last 10 years.  Besides homeschooling she has taught in the education department at Jackson Community College and science classes in the virtual world.

Heather has been married to John Getson for 20 years and has four children.  John is 17, Samantha is 15 and Josh and Sophia are 11.  They love to travel as a family and spend a lot of time outdoors.  She lives on a small farm and has chickens, goats and four dogs.

She loves to teach science, especially physics and biology.  It has been a joy to teach online and have the freedom to talk about God and his many creations.  She is excited to work with parents and students this year.
