Friday Evening Vespers: Aubrey & Jan Fautheree (Staff '88-'04)
Aubrey & Jan Fautheree were beloved science and bible teachers at GSA from 1988 to 2004. In those 16 years their compassionate understanding, solid leadership and innovative teaching styles influenced countless students for Christ. Since leaving GSA in 2004 their path took them a different direction from teaching: they've been managing a physical therapy practice and enjoying all that Florida has to offer. Aubrey does lots of bird watching, golfing, and fishing. Jan's love of all things spiritual continues to grow, and her passion for reading and studying the Bible is as strong as ever, she still teaches Sabbath School as well. Raising their two boys occupies any spare time as both of them are very involved with sports. Bree is a Junior and attending Georgia Cumberland Academy and Eli is in the sixth grade. Both are doing great in their classes and their parents think they are growing up TOO fast!
