Teacher Bio: As a business owner with degrees in Biology and Chemistry coupled with years of teaching experience (I taught college-level Anatomy & Physiology to nursing students, multiple high school sciences in private christian school, and now homeschool teacher) as well as entrepreneurship / leadership coaching of business owners over the last 25 years, I'm excited to have the opportunity to share this incredible class with your student.  The curriculum is beautifully written from a Christian world-view and provides not only the opportunity to build a strong foundational knowledge for those who may choose to major in Psychology in college, but most importantly, uses the Bible throughout to encourage building a solid foundation for a lifetime of strong mental health with opportunities for many healthy discussions at home as well.
