I graduated from Auburn University in 1975 and started my teaching career in the Fall of 1976 at Jemison High School.  I received my Masters Degree in 1980 and my EdS. Degree in 2005 from the University of Montevallo.  I became the Assistant Principal at Jemison Elementary School in the Fall of 2001 and the Principal in the Fall of 2004.  I became the Principal of Clanton Intermediate School in June 2016.  As a 1971 graduate of Chilton County High School, I felt as if I had come full circle to come back to Clanton. 

My husband is Barry Pitts and we have 4 children:  Samantha Sims (Kyle), Sally Fichtner (Kevin), B.J. Pitts (Tia), and Jessica Trotman (William). I have 10 grandchildren, Five attend school here in Clanton, with three students at CIS.

I am excited about CIS' House System that we have implemented this year.  With this program we are teaching students to be kind, show respect, look people in the eye, put forth their best effort, etc.  I am looking forward to having a great year. Together we can make a difference in the future of our children.
