About Heather Barrieau
Heather Barrieau started off as a Biology major at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington but switched over to chemistry after her second year. She majored in Chemistry and earned a minor in Psychology. She started her Masters in Teaching while working at Western in the Chemistry department as the Lab Coordinator where she taught general chemistry labs but later chose to stay home after her first year when her daughter was born. She also worked as a chemist at both Georgia Pacific and Alcoa Aluminum.
Heather moved to NE Ohio for 9 years for her husband’s work and discovered homeschooling. She has been homeschooling her two oldest kids since 2010 and now feels that God has given her this opportunity to teach with MyFunScience.com.
Heather currently resides in Colorado and stays busy with her husband of 17 years (Shawn), 3 kids (14, 13 and 5), an old dog and 2 cats where she has been blessed to stay at home.
Heather has always loved science and loves to seek the answer to the question “Why am I learning this?” and “How can I use this in my life?” Her biggest desire is to see Christ and His miracles in everyday life and knows that the “why’s and how’s” sometimes have to take a back seat to Rom 1:17b “The righteous shall live by faith”.
