For as long as Heather Eades can remember, she has been both a writer and an artist, and loves teaching young people to do the same. Earning her B.A. in Visual Arts and English from Otterbein College in Westerville, OH, along with her studies at Columbus College of Art and Design, helped launch her professional career in publishing where she served as an editor and art liaison for SRA/McGraw-Hill, Inc., helping to create the elementary art program, Art Connections. Her passion and enthusiasm for helping create fun, innovative learning experiences at Group Publishing, Inc. led her to earn her MA in education with a focus on creating arts-based, literacy-rich curriculum for all students. With over 20 years of professional experience in publishing, her specialty has become designing, writing about, and implementing creative, arts-based curriculum and educational “fun-tivities” for all ages
And while she recently went back to full-time work in 2021 as the writer and project manager for Colorado Christian University’s Communications and Creative Services department after a 20-year freelance writing/editing career, Heather is most passionate about her first and favorite work: the fine art of homeschooling — teaching her own and other students in their homeschooling community. Heather Eades is excited to begin her sixth successful year of teaching online with Aim Academy!
In her spare time, Mrs. Eades loves to laugh, draw, read, hike, and camp with her family, co-lead youth ministry with her husband at their church in Denver, …and can be found consuming obscene amounts of coffee.
