My name is Marilyn Short and I have two children, named Chase and Ciara.

My daughter graduated from Cal State Fullerton and is an All American in Track and Field and is currently competing in Olympic tryouts.  My son, Chase, is a student at San Diego State University and hopes to major in the medical field.

I graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and have a multiple subject teaching credential.  In addition, I have taught pre-kindergarten through six grade.  Also, I gained much experience being  a director of a Christian preschool for five years.

I am active in my church. I teach Sunday School and organize plays for young children.  We are a Christian family, and believe in sharing our faith with others, especially children.  Education has taught me that all children need to be loved, and their voices heard, on the path to learning.

Importantly, Jesus loves the little children because they are His shining jewels.  He wants us to speak his words and teach the gospel to all children.  It has been very rewarding to have worked in several Christian schools to spread moral and family values to the children we serve each day.  It is so rewarding to have children recite Bible verses and be enthusiastic about their faith.
