My name is Rosanna Pittman, and I am beginning my third year at Manson Elementary as a third grade teacher. I previously taught second and third grade in the Options Program and second grade at Manson. I received my BA degree in Christian Education from Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho. After many years, I earned my Masters in Teaching from Western Governors University. I was a Youth Pastor in Seattle, WA., and a paraeducator at Manson Elementary for several years before teaching.I moved to the Chelan Valley in 1997 to be closer to family and raise our children in a small supportive community. We have 3 grown children who attended Manson schools throughout their elementary and high school years. I enjoy being a part of a community that encourages one another to reach for their best in whatever they choose.Some of my favorite things to do are spending time with my family, running, reading a wide variety of genres, listening to music, shopping and spending time on beautiful Lake Chelan.I look forward to being your child’s teacher this year. I thoroughly enjoy seeing the spark in their eyes when they get an “aha” moment and encouraging them to explore their goals and aspirations.
