Welcome to Math and Bible!

My name is Michele Forster, and I have the privilege to be teaching math and Bible this year to all of fourth grade. I received both my undergraduate and master's degrees from Georgia State University. I have 19 years of teaching experience in both public and private schools. This is my seventh year at Hebron Christian Academy.

I have lived in Gwinnett county since 1983. However, we are in the process of having a house built in Winder. We would like to be closer to our church, Cedar Creek Baptist Church, where my husband has been the pastor for the past 2 years. Duke and I have been married for almost 22 years and have been blessed with three children. Emily is 20 years old and attends GGC in Lawrenceville. She plans on majoring in business. Anna is 19 years old and will attend UNG Gainesville in the fall. She plans on majoring in communications and possibly minoring in theater. Steven is my youngest. He is almost 16 and is a sophomore this year at HCA. In my spare time, I enjoy walking, playing disc golf and tennis, as well as hanging out with family and friends. I also enjoy shopping and going to the movies.

I am excited about the opportunity to get to know your child and family. If you have any questions or concerns, the best way to get in touch with me is through email. My email address is mforster@hebronlions.org.
