Pittman has been working in the school environment for 36 years. He did most of his college through Indiana University, where he received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education. He did additional graduate work in school administration. When he graduated college, he began teaching in the Evansville area.
“What drew me to the position was the bilingual job and chance to work with a multicultural group,” Pittman said. “It’s important because I’ve never worked in a multicultural school in the states.”
He has two children, Alex, who is in the U.S. army and stationed in Afghanistan, and Victor, who works on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico.
Pittman expects and wants the year to go as smoothly as it began.
McKinney spoke of Pittman adding to the existing partnership with other schools, particularly with Michele Starkey and Logansport schools.
“We have a great partnership; it is not a competition,” McKinney said. “If we can provide good leadership in the area of education, faith and we have this incredible resource of knowledge, talk about a blessing.”
