My name is Catherine Pettitt, and this year I am privileged to be joining a glorious team of teachers and students at Emerson Elementary School. Although this is my first year at Emerson, this will be my eleventh year teaching elementary school. I have taught every grade K-6 now, but the intermediate grades are my favorite; I am proud to be a fifth grade teacher.

I grew up in Seattle, Washington, where I also attended college; I earned my B.A.Ed. in Elementary Education from City University of Seattle in 2007. I am still a proud Seattle Seahawks fan, but I left Seattle for the hot desert sun in 2007. I've since earned a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, and an Ed.S. in Educational Leadership, both from Grand Canyon University. I most recently taught in the Glendale Elementary School District where I taught fourth and sixth grades at Challenger Middle School, and then third grade at Desert Garden Elementary School. Previously, I taught kindergarten at the charter school Imagine Avondale, and second, third, and fourth grade at Whittier Elementary School in Central Phoenix. 

I am excited to share significant opportunities with our Emerson Eagles to achieve success in our pursuit of being 21st century learners. This will be a phenomenal year of learning and growing for us all!
