Dr. Anna Hart joined the Columbus State University faculty in 2018. She currently serves as Associate Professor of Teacher Leadership and Teacher Leadership program coordinator, as well as the Executive Director of Assessment for the College of Education and Health Professions.

Prior to joining CSU, she served as Assistant Professor of Education and Coordinator of Special Projects at Dalton State College in Dalton, Georgia, from 2016 to 2018. At DSC, one of Dr. Hart’s proudest accomplishments was the initiation of a partnership with two local school systems that resulted in hands-on technology professional development for all elementary and secondary teacher candidates. Dr. Hart served as an elementary school teacher from 2007 to 2016. Eight of those nine years of service were spent teaching kindergarten. During this time she also added endorsements in ESOL and Reading to her teaching certification.
Outside of education, Dr. Hart holds licensure as a Realtor in the state of Georgia. She and her husband Richard, a commercial airline pilot, have been married for over a decade and share two beautiful daughters, Ansley and Natalie. Thanks to her husband’s job, Dr. Hart and her family have become avid travelers, and are currently working on filling up their daughters’ National Parks Passports! Dr. Hart counts it an honor and a privilege to work with such a dedicated and talented group of faculty, staff, and students at Columbus State. Go Cougars!
