about me

Education

I graduated cum laude from Auburn University Montgomery with my Bachelor's degree in Childhood Education. I received my Master's degree in Elementary Education from Troy Montgomery.

Experience

  • Pine Level Elementary School (2007-2016)
  • Daniel Pratt Elementary School (2016- present)

My name is Shawna Short. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart Matt Short, who is a PE teacher at Prattville Elementary School and football coach at Prattville Junior High School.  We have three wonderful children, Reece (12), Marley Kate (10), and Sarah Collins (5) who keep us VERY busy! 

I absolutely love teaching! There is no greater feeling than watching a child grow and learn! We are going to have a fabulous year!

 

A few of my favorite things include: Chick-Fil-A, Fountain City Nutrition, and getting my nails done! :)
