Welcome Back!

Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year. This year marks my eleventh year as a teacher in the Cobb County School District. Prior to joining the Pitner Patriots, I worked as a Special Education teacher at Milford Elementary. This is my second year at Pitner Elementary and I have the privilege of co-teaching with Mrs. Gaines in 3rd grade! Our classroom blog can be found using the following link:  Mrs. Gaines’ & Mrs. Bruce’s Galaxy

As we move forward in the school year, I am happy to answer any questions you might have. Should you have any questions OR concerns, feel free to email or call at any time! You may contact me via email at or by phone at 678-594-8320.

I look forward to a wonderful year together! Go Patriots!
