Hello My Name Is...

Kathy Pitt


 

I am a highly qualified teacher of science.

Welcome to science class! Whether you're in my chemistry or biology class, I hope you'll find something to interest you.

Chemistry is known as the "Central Science" because any field of science you can think of relates back to chemistry. My goal for this class is to guide students to an understanding of basic chemistry, its importance in their daily lives, as well as the wide variety of careers in chemistry.

Biology is the study of living things. We'll delve into the components of cells and their functions, the basis of heredity, ecology, evolution, and the organization of living things.

To help you with organization, we'll be using Interactive notebooks in class.

About me:

I have a degree from Shorter University as well as a degree from Lesley University. I have a B.S. in Natural Science, an M.Ed in Educational Technology, as well as 30+ additional hours in science education courses. I've been teaching science for 22 years. I've made Beaufort High my "home away from home" since 2003,teaching Biology and Business Computer Applications in Freshman Academy and now Chemistry and Biology to upperclassmen.

I've lived in Beaufort for 31 years. My husband, Jeff, and I celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary this year. He is an English teacher at Battery Creek High School. We have two adult sons, Will and Michael, both Beaufort High graduates and a lovely daughter-in-law named Hollie (married to Will).

My two favorite things to do are traveling and reading. I've been very blessed to be able to travel to some amazing places: Greece, Italy, France, England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and Costa Rica. My most recent big trip was to all the New England states summer before last. This summer, we took a short trip to the Smoky Mountains where we stayed at a cabin on a beautiful river. In addition to traveling, I also enjoy doing crafts like basket-making and rubber stamping, as well as gardening. My most recent hobby is cake decorating. I took a course and learned how to make amazing flowers out of sugar. I even made my son's wedding cake as well as my niece's. I relax by reading, sitting on my patio, gazing out at our backyard, our flower garden, our fish ponds, and the marsh.

I look forward to getting to know all my students this year as we explore chemistry and biology together!
