Heidi has been a teacher for 20+ years in private school, home school and co-operative settings. During that time Heidi has not only taught whole classrooms and tutored individual students, but also supervised groups of teachers and tutors, led teaching seminars, and written original curriculum for USA and World Geography, Middle School Writing and Grammar, Beginning Latin and Virtue-based Programs. Heidi is the owner of Something Beautiful Media.
Heidi's teaching style is very experiential, visual, artistic and hands-on. Her style also makes use of additive learning, which is the continual integration of new information to prior knowledge so that at the end of a unit of study, the entire unit of study is cemented together in the students' minds.
Heidi is an award-winning photographer and author as well as an Educational Consultant and Geography teacher. She has published 20+ children's books and books for Christian women and writes for online blogs and women's forums.
