Shannon Svatek

Director, Teacher

            I am thrilled to be entering my sixth year at Fellowship Academy and my thirteenth year as an educator.  I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor’s degree in history.  I went to grad school at San Jose State University to receive my teaching credential.  After several years in the public-school system, I relish the opportunity to teach about Jesus in my classroom.  The best part of Fellowship Academy is the incredible support I get from the families of my students.  We work as a team.

                 Wes has a passion for God’s Word, and loves studying it and teaching it. His teaching experience dates back to the four-year-old classes of Sunday School at Hyde Park. He then moved to teaching seventh-grade boys. Since joining Fellowship, he has taught an adult class continually until the summer of 2017.

Tanya Aydelott

Elem. Teacher

               I am looking forward to teaching at Fellowship Academy for 4th and 5th grade. I began last year at the end of March. My teaching journey began in Leander teaching at Cornerstone Academy, a private Christian school. I did not have teaching credentials yet but after teaching my first year there I knew teaching was the profession I was called to. I taught one more year in private school before going back to school to get my masters degree in bilingual education. I taught for 8 1/2 years in public education. I have taught 5th grade for 7 1/2 years and 4th grade for 4 years. I speak and can teach in Spanish.  I am excited to freely teach students about Jesus and tie lessons back to the most important part of our lives, our spiritual walk. I have enjoyed working with parents at Fellowship and look forward to a new year working together. 

April Bryce

Elem. Teacher

              My journey as a teacher began at a very young age. I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I started Kindergarten. Over the last six years, I have taught in a public and private school setting. My passion to teach in private comes along with the ability to share God’s Word in the classroom. I feel the Lord has led me directly to this school as well as the third grade.  I look forward to building rapport with the community, the staff, my students, and the parents.  I’m excited to see the plans God has for all of us.

“You can find magic wherever you look.
Set back and relax, all you need is a book.”
Dr. Suess.

         I am a passionate reader and this is my primary motivation for teaching. This is why I got my degree in Elementary Education from Texas A&M . I taught in public school until I became a stay-at-home mom to four lovely daughters. The daughters are now grown. This is my third year at Fellowship Academy and I am enjoying every day.

Kristi Hargrove

I am excited to be a part of Fellowship Academy for the 2019-2020 school year as a Physical Education teacher.  I am retired after 25 years in public education as a teacher/coach and school administrator.  I love working with children and look forward to working with the students at Fellowship Academy. 

I taught English, P.E., and coached for 9 years in Round Rock, Pflugerville, and Florence ISD.  I was a school administrator for 16 years in the Dallas and Austin area.  I received my undergrad from St. Edward’s University and majored in Health, Recreation, and Sports Management and minored in English.  I received my Master’s degree from Texas State University in Educational Leadership.  I attend Celebration Church and serve in their children’s ministry. 

I recently moved to Liberty Hill to be close to my grandchildren.  I love spending time with my grandchildren and traveling.  I also work part time at The University of Texas with their athletes.  I look forward to working with your student and teaching them about health, various sports and activities, and sharing God’s love with them.
