Hello, my name is Brittany Jean Pittman. I started South Alabama in 2007 and have changed my major more than a couple times. I am now an Elementary Education major and a full time student this semester. I intend to further my education and get my Masters in Art education. I am planning to teach the small ones like first grade and then later, after getting my Masters, get a job in the Art field of teaching.
I also work part time as a Bookkeeper for a small convenient store in Grand Bay called Kountry Korner. This is a family business that my dad has had for the last 25 years or so. It is great because I have the opportunity to schedule my own hours; this helps me to work around school and other activities that involve school.
The other activities and hobbies I like involve art. I like to consider myself an artist, I took a ceramics class here at South and found I have the skills to be an artist. So from that point on I have been taking at least one ceramic class a semester and recently moved into the glass field this semester. I really enjoy the ceramic classes and hope that I get to explore more in the art department at South.
This could not be done without family. I live with my dad, Rory and little sister Becca who is 20. I also have another sister Kimberly who is 24. I have two nephews, Tyler 6 and Trevor 1, they are my heart and I love to spend time with them. My mom Brenda and step dad Jr. also help me with school and keep me in line whenever I need it. My biggest supporter is my grandma Carol who motivates me not only in school but out of school too. I have a boyfriend named Luke, who is a little older than me that I have been dating for almost a year and a half; he gives me the other support my family can’t provide. I am very lucky to live on a 750 acre farm and am blessed with the advantages of having opportunities that many don’t have, like taking a walk through the woods and around the lake.
I am looking forward to this semester because I have a lot going for me. I recently invested in a house, which I made into a rental, and have my first tenants that are great. I have always been interested in rental houses, so I’m excited I finally get a chance to have one of my own. This semester I also, for the first time, get to do field experience and am looking forward to it.
