Mrs. Kimberly Pitt

My name is Kimberly Pitt, and this year marks my 14th year in education.  Teaching has always been an important part of my life, and I knew at an early age that I wanted to teach elementary school.  My mother taught third grade for 46 years, and some of my fondest memories are when I helped her in her classroom.  My brother teaches third grade in La Canada and my sister teaches first grade in Oregon. 

Throughout my ten years in the classroom I have mostly taught fourth grade, and I’ve also taught fifth grade and kindergarten.  For the past four years though, I worked as an Elementary Teacher Specialist in the Teaching and Learning Department for GUSD.  This year, I am so excited to be returning to the classroom and to be teaching my favorite grade.

I graduated college in 2005 from UC Riverside with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Sociology.  I attended Cambridge University in England for a semester abroad during my undergraduate time.  Following my undergraduate work, I attended Cal State Channel Islands to earn my multiple subject teaching credential and I started working as a substitute teacher in Camarillo and Thousand Oaks.  Then, I moved home to Pasadena and started working in La Canada Unified.  I also lived on the westside and taught in Beverly Hills Unified District for six years, then came back to La Canada Unified after moving again. 

Last year, I completed my Masters of Science degree in Curriculum and Instruction at WGU.  My husband Jeremy and I have three kids; Hayley (7), and twin boys Johnny and Cody (2).  We love to travel and spend lots of time together as a family.

This will be my fifth year in Glendale Unified and I am so happy to be joining the wonderful school community at Mountain Avenue.  I am really looking forward to a fantastic school year with your kids!
