My name is Amy Pitaro, and I have been teaching at McKinley Elementary since 2017. I earned my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education from Penn State University in 2005. Shortly after, I moved to Virginia from Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers!) to begin my teaching career. Since 2006, I have taught both third and fourth graders. I have also instructed various after-school programs teaching students K-5. I am currently coaching Girls on the Run at McKinley! When I’m not teaching elementary school students, you can find me at Pure Barre Arlington instructing fitness classes. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring my creative side through art and photography. My absolute favorite thing to do is travel to new places with my husband, Alex.
