Meet Mrs. Short
This is my sixteenth year teaching at Zitzman Elementary. I taught one year in second grade and 15 years in third grade. Every year has been exciting and memorable, as I have been lucky to teach such fabulous students! Zitzman Elementary is a terrific place where I truly enjoy being around such wonderful students, staff, and parents.
I grew up in Pacific and currently live here with my small family. My daughter, Campbell, is the love of my life and she keeps my husband and I very busy with her many sporting activities.
Here's a bit more about my educational background. I graduated from the University of Missouri-Mizzou in 1999 with a Bachlor's degree in Elementary Education. I completed my Master's degree in Education from Southwest Baptist University in 2002.
I am a huge MIZZOU fan and enjoy going to a few football games every year with my family. I also love camping and traveling as much as possible!
In my classroom, I promote an atmosphere of safety, responsibility, and respect. I work hard to establish positive relationships and promote a sense of community with all my students. I truly believe that great things can happen when we work together!
