Mr. Pettit's - 5th & 6th Grade Math & Science
About Mr. Pettit
Hello students and families!
My name is Mr. Pettit and I am incredibly excited to work with you this school year! I was born and raised in nearby Santa Barbara.
I received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and Bachelor's in Liberal Studies at Antioch University. Currently, I am working on finishing my Master's in Education.
My passion for teaching children developed while serving as a mentor for high school and college students at an international NGO.
Following a full year of service as a substitute teacher for two school districts, as well as experience student teaching at charter schools, I am eager to work with the 5th and 6th grade students here at SYVCS!
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, camping, and fishing. I also love playing guitar, writing-music, and listening to vinyl records.
My wife Kelly and I are expecting our first child (a boy) in mid-October 2019!
About this site
This website will serve as a place where you, (parent/guardian or student), may find supplemental resources for each of my courses as well as for the school community as a whole. (I even have some resources I recommend for my fellow teachers). I hope you find it useful. Updates will be made as soon as necessary. Thank you for visiting!
