My name is Aaron Fitzgerald, and I am excited to be the Begindergarten-12th-grade vocal music director at Ankeny Christian Academy district. The 2014-15 school year is my third year of teaching vocal and general music. I attended Iowa Central Community College my first two years of schooling and graduated from Buena Vista University with a B.A. in K12 music education. I am currently finishing up my Master’s Degree in Choral Music Education through North Dakota State University. In my postsecondary training, I was involved with various choral/instrumental/drama groups including choir, band, vocal jazz, jazz band, show choir, brass ensemble, speech, plays, and musicals. The skills and knowledge I gained from these experiences have afforded me the tools to continue building this growing program.
I grew up in a Christian family but lacked a personal relationship with Christ. Several years ago, God brought me an amazing women, who is now my wife. Once we started dating I began attending worship services with her at Ankeny Free Church. Immediately, God began to work through me using the music and Scripture-based teachings. Soon after that time, I joined the worship ministry team and am a current member.
Ankeny Christian Academy is an exceptional educational institution, and I am truly blessed that God brought me to this family of believers. I look forward to working with the students, staff, and parents of ACA.
