Tasha Schultz

I am Tasha Schultz, I am the Coordinator for the preschool and nursery department at The Heights Baptist. I have a degree in Criminal Justice, English and Paralegal Studies. I am married with four children, we help care for our niece and nephew, a total of six children all together. I am a native of Chesterfield County, Chester area. We have been blessed with the knowledge and opportunity of homeschooling our children for the past nine years and have graduated our oldest, who attends college.

Growing up, I had a knowledge of Jesus, my prayer life was developed in my childhood, which gave me a feeling of comfort throughout my teen years. As I grew into my adult years, my relationship with Jesus grew tremendously, which has helped me to develop who I am as a follower of Christ. I feel that having a true relationship with Jesus is important for our next generation when developing their own identity in Christ. Having Godfidence has helped me overcome so many trials.

I will be offering this year 1st grade math. Whether the child is a visual learner or auditory learner, I will show the children many different ways to get the same answer, so that the child can find the best learning technique for themselves. Every child is different and there are many ways to learn a skill.
