Heather Pesola Bio

Hello! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Wyoming. My mom faithfully took my brothers and I to church. There I learned about Christ and His love and sacrifice for me. I accepted the Lord as my Savior when I was twelve years old under the leadership of my mom in our country home. Since then, I have been striving to please God in all that I do, to grow in Him, and to serve Him to the best of my ability.
My family and I moved to Idaho when I was fifteen to live and work on a cattle ranch. I am so thankful to the Lord for the time I was able to spend working alongside my dad and brothers while on the ranch. I learned many valuable lessons, learned a lot about myself, and created fond memories. Two of the aspects of myself that I learned from working on the ranch was that I enjoy working hard and that I enjoy working with horses. From learning this, I went on to study Equine Science in college. I was able to work as an intern on a cutting horse ranch in Texas and Virginia through the equine program. After graduating with my Equine Science degree, I knew that I needed a career that would pair well with my admiration for horses; thus, I chose to pursue my Secondary English teaching degree. The Lord blessed me with a job that offered both right after graduation. I moved to Utah to teach English and western riding lessons at a private international school.
After two years working there, the Lord called me to teach at a small private Christian school back in Idaho for three years. There I taught 9-12th grade English/Literature and junior high girl’s PE. I also coached junior high volleyball.
My husband, Paul, and I got married December 2015. We moved out here to Minnesota in the middle of August 2016. I am very excited to have been given the privilege to teach here at Fourth Baptist Christian School, and I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
I carry an Equine Science degree from the College of Southern Idaho and a Secondary English degree from Idaho State University. I have taught English full time for five years.
