Hi there! Welcome to FOURTH grade! I am excited to be your teacher this year and am looking forward to all of the learning that is to come!
About me: This is my 7th year of teaching and my 4th year at Nadine Johnson Elementary. I am a Texas State University graduate (GO BOBCATS!), where I studied Criminal Justice, and have experience in the Human Resources field. I have since found my passion working with children and I love being in education.
Prior to being a Hutto Hippo, I lived in Houston with my family. I have a 5 year old son, a 2 year old daughter and a Great Dane...needless to say, there is never a dull moment in the Pittman household!
Beliefs: It is my hope that my students are excited to come to school every day, be confident and fearless learners and know that making mistakes is part of the learning and growing process. I also believe that in order to have the greatest chance of success, our children need the fundamental structure that a loving and supporting family can provide.
Some of my favorite things include coffee, chocolate, painting, and listening to podcasts.
