Mrs. Leslie Michaels To All Instructors
I have been teaching Art to home schooled children for 20 years & have been with Heritage since it's inception. I have a passion both for Art, and for teaching, especially in such a wonderful Christian environment!
Besides teaching Art, I’ve also been self-employed as a muralist/professional artist for 25 years. I especially love to paint murals in children’s rooms. Examples of my artwork can be seen on my Facebook Page (Leslie Michaels Murals & Decorative Painting)
I've been married to my husband Mike for 32 years & our daughter Marisa is married to a wonderful guy named Christopher. They are expecting their first child in May!
As far as my faith, I came to know the Lord in Spirit & in truth when I was born again at the age of 18. I've been walking with Him ever since! I attend church at Calvary Chapel.
I discovered years ago that teaching is one of my spiritual gifts. I have taught Sunday school at my church, as well as Women's Bible Studies for many years.
Since my faith & relationship with God is the most important aspect of my life, I continually seek His guidance in my life & in my teaching... & strive to reflect His love to all my students. I believe God is the "Ultimate Artist" as our Creator & the Designer of all beauty. I encourage my students to grow in & practice their own artistic gifts & the talents God has given them.
