My name is DeAnna Pitman and this will be my second year at Horizon Intermediate teaching 6th grade ELA. I was born and raised in El Centro, California. I graduated from college, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, a LONG time ago! I met my husband there and after graduation we moved to Tulare, California where we lived for 26 years. I have worked in advertising and was the Marketing Director for a real estate company before I discovered I had a passion for teaching. I taught 5th-8th ELA at a private school in Tulare before making the move to Yukon.
Our oldest daughter graduated from OSU and teaches 3rd grade at Creek Elementary. Our younger daughter is a senior at OSU. Go Pokes! My husband and I loved visiting our daughters at OSU so much that we decided we would move here too! We packed up everything and moved to Yukon in June 2020. We also have two dogs, Abby and Cody, who are still adjusting to the thunder storms in Oklahoma!
I’m so excited to be here at Mustang and can’t wait to meet all of you!
