Heather Axelson is a homeschool mom of nine precious children, ranging in age from 14 years down to 18 months. She has loved learning and teaching from the beginning, and her grandfather was instrumental in developing in her a life-long love for math. As a child, she began making math flash cards and homework for her first “students” – her siblings. Heather graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. She taught Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, and Calculus AB at a small public high school for three years before meeting her husband, Eric. They married in the summer of 2002, and Heather returned to A&M to obtain a master’s degree in mathematics. After finishing graduate school, she taught finite math and business calculus at Texas A&M University and worked with her previous professors creating math entrance exams and making video solutions/explanations to homework problems for a college algebra class. For the past ten years, she has focused on homeschooling her children and learning how to teach them classically.
Eric and Heather reside in Houston, Texas, and have been active members of Sovereign Grace Church Pearland for the past fifteen years. Heather is passionate about passing down the baton of faith and loves morning times with her children memorizing Scripture, reading from God’s Word, and catechizing. In her “spare” time, she loves to spend time with her husband and children going for walks and runs, playing sports in their cul-de-sac, or reading books.
