About Mrs. Oechsner:


Heather has had the opportunity to teach a variety of grades at Lutheran schools in Michigan, Washington and now Wisconsin. She and her husband, Bryan, who is also in the teaching ministry, live in Cedarburg. They have 3 high-energy sons, Cole(13), Denny(11) and Jonah(9). They all attend school and church at First Immanuel, Cedarburg. Heather enjoys gardening, all things-BOYS, instructing classes at a downtown art studio, directing youth theater and chaperoning high school trips abroad with her husband.

Favorite Bible Verse: 1 Peter 1:3-9
Why send students to Living Word? From walking these halls, seeing how the teachers here address the whole child, I can say as a parent of 3 future teenagers, there is nowhere else I’d want my sons to be every day. The battle of “Word” vs. “World” gets stronger every day and this is a place where they can prepare to be servants and disciples of Christ for life after high school.
