Tim Callaway

Principal I have lived in north Texas all my life and am the youngest of 12 children. I have been married 34 years to my wife Kathy and we have 3 children; Ashely, Jared and Katelyn. We also have three dogs; K.C., Roxie and Whylee. We attend Grace Church, and I am a member of "Prairie Moon Western Music Band" (not country and western, but "Cowboy" music). I have worked in public schools for 33 years, and absolutely LOVE Christ Academy!

Dawn Carpenter

Director of Admissions & Records I attend Grace Church and am active in a variety of adult bible studies, VBS and youth programs. I am married to Brandon, a pastor at Grace Church, and have 2 beautiful children, Thomas and Hannah, who attend Christ Academy. I have a bachelor’s degree from West Texas A & M University in Math Education and would love to go back to school for a Bible degree. I taught secondary math in both public and private school for 10 years before moving into this role as Director of Admissions & Records. I enjoy my job at Christ Academy so much! It is a pleasure to be on staff at this wonderful school.

Kerri Short

Executive Assistant I was born and raised in Lubbock, Texas. In 1985, I graduated from Texas Tech University with a BS in Secondary Education. My teaching career includes English instruction at the secondary level for ten years and third grade instruction at Christ Academy for six years. I am thrilled to now serve Christ Academy in a new capacity as Administrative Assistant. I have been married to my husband, Tim, since 1991, and we are blessed to have one precious son, Parker, who attends Rider High School. We have lived in Wichita Falls for 13 years and consider it our home!

Fonde Hrazdil

Business Manager I moved to Burkburnett, Texas, in 1973, at the age of twelve, having come here by way of the Azores Islands where I was born, then Georgia, South Carolina and Anchorage, Alaska. My father’s service in the US Air Force provided me great memories of being with my family, especially in Alaska where every weekend we would load up and go camping in the mountains.
I graduated from Midwestern State University with a BBA in Accounting. I earned the CPA designation in 2000, and subsequently served three years on the board of the Wichita Falls Chapter of the Texas Society of CPAs.
My husband, Greg, and I have been married for 25 years and have two beautiful daughters, Ashley and Callie. We are members at First Baptist Church in Burkburnett. Our family appreciates the challenging academic program at CA, the Christian environment and the opportunities for service to the local community.
