Mrs. Pittman

By Faith

Born and raised in Texas, Mrs. Pitman went to different colleges before she started teaching, but the main college she got her degree in and graduated from was the University of Texas at San Antonio. Before she started working for NEISD she worked for John Paul Catholic High School in New Braunfels, TX as the director of Fine Arts.Then, she worked at Krueger MS as an art teacher. Thankfully, now she has switched to Garner and is much appreciated for being not only an art teacher, but also a PALS, and theatre arts teacher.

Now to more serious factors, Mrs. Pitman’s favorite color is purple, her favorite type of food is Mexican food, and her favorite shows are Empire, Modern family, and The Middle. Her favorite songs are ‘Sorry’, and ‘What Do You Mean’ both by Justin Bieber. ‘Devil Wears Prada’ is her favorite movie. Outside of school, she likes to surround herself with her family, (daughter, 2 sons, and husband) and do photography. Around Garner she also helps with one act plays, UIL speech events, and the art club.

Besides people in her family she is also known for having so many pets! She has 5 dogs (Elliott, Beau Beau, and Heavenly, Weena, and Sweetie Pie.) Another type of animal she has is cat. She has a blind cat, a blind/deaf cat, reg. cat, and two kittens (Helen Keller, Cuddle fish, ChupaCabra, Frida Kahlo, and Nelly Bly.) And lastly, a bearded dragon named pistachio, a Haitian Curly Tail named Cleopatra, and (her favorite) a goat named June bug.

Her favorite holiday is Thanksgiving because she likes to be with her family and the food. And her favorite football team is the Miami Dolphins because she likes the colors. Lastly, I asked her what her favorite childhood memory was and what she was most afraid of as a kid. She told me “my favorite childhood memory was getting my first kitten and giving her dog ‘bubbles’ a snow day in her freezer when she was 5 years old. And her biggest childhood fear was either getting kidnapped or ghosts.

No Need for a Siesta when you are at a Fiesta

By Ava S.

On February 12, 2013 Garner Families got together to support their school. There was a PTA meeting, and the choir, theater, orchestra, and band preformed. La Fonda helped support Garner by catering the meal.  Art students displayed their work so everyone could see their beauty. An auction was held so the Fine Arts programs at Garner could have more money. This Fine Arts Fiesta was fun, but afterward, everyone needed a siesta. “It’s great to help out your school in a fun way,” says Parent Vienna Gerlach. Here are some pictures from this gala!
