Meet Your Instructors!
The science sections of this course are taught by Patrick Nurre. Patrick was in the second grade when he made his first big fossil find – a large dinosaur bone in the alley behind his house! This was the beginning of a lifelong love of geology. Today, Patrick is a popular speaker on geology and worldview. He is a teacher and author, having written sixteen geology textbooks. In addition, he leads field trips, including his popular Yellowstone tour for families. Patrick’s ministry, Northwest Treasures, creates geology kits and curricula from a young-Earth perspective. He is a Certified Biblical Creation Ministry Professional.
And the art sections are taught by Heather Hall. Heather is a homeschool mom who has used the Principle Approach® in her homeschool for over 15 years. She’s a Principle Approach® Master Teacher, writer, podcaster, and has run a Principle Approach® homeschool co-op for several years. She has been a painting enthusiast from a young age. Her book, Art is Discipleship: A Practical Guide to Influencing the Culture for Christ, is set to publish later this year (2022). Heather has a degree in Visual Communications, and owns a small graphic design and layout business.
