Miss Anna Short
Hello! My name is Anna Short and I am so excited to be teaching Second Grade at ACA! I live in Pleasant Hill, Iowa. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends as well as teaching Sunday School or other activities at church. I also love reading, sewing and traveling to faraway places like Ecuador.
I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education at the University of Northern Iowa in May 2017. After obtaining my degree, I taught for two years at Joshua Christian Academy, one year as a fourth grade teacher and one year as a first grade teacher. I have previously worked at Ankeny Christian Academy in the Child Care and Preschool section as well as in the Summer Day Camp, and very much enjoyed it, which led me to seek reemployment here.
It is a matter of great importance to me to work at a Christian school. While I know that Christ can be shared in whatever arena I find myself, I love teaching children about Jesus and what He has done on the cross. I came to a saving knowledge of Christ at a very young age, and from then on, I have been striving to draw closer to Him, and demonstrate His love towards others. Like the Apostle John, I “have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth” (3 John 1:4).
