Meet Mr. Bridger DeWitt

Meet Mr. Bridger DeWitt:


Mr. Bridger DeWitt is our fifth and sixth grade teacher as well as serving as Pittsburg School’s assistant principal.  He has a sister.  His mom worked as a director of Christian education when he was growing up, and his dad was a commander in the Coast Guard.  He really looks up to his dad.  Mr. DeWitt’s first pet was a cat, and he loved reading the Francis books by Lillian Hoban as a young boy.   He liked watching Robotech on TV as a child.  He said that the funniest thing he did as a child was to make a float out of his bike for the bike parade at his school when he was in third grade.

 He went to Hillsboro High School in Nashville, TN where he liked playing soccer and basketball.  He reported that his favorite thing about high school was lunch!  After high school, Mr. DeWitt went on to attend Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona.  He loved making new friends in college and really enjoyed his college experience though he wasn’t especially fond of his German class.

Mr. DeWitt really loves teaching but his favorite thing to teach is math because as he says, “numbers are cool.”  His favorite classroom projects are working with castles and pyramids. He has been teaching for 27 years now.  Before coming to teach here in Pittsburg, he taught in California.  In addition to teaching, Mr. DeWitt also works at a state park here in Pittsburg. 

Asked what he likes about teaching, Mr. DeWitt responded, “All of it.” He likes working here at Pittsburg School because he feels like teaching here is like being a part of an extended family.

In his free time, Mr. DeWitt likes to read fantasy and adventure books, and he really likes spending time outside.  He says that his best talent is being able to quote movies.  He and his family have two cats and a dog.  Going to Hawaii with his family was his most memorable vacation.
