About me: 
My name is Gwendolyn Pitarra and this is my 5th year at Tomball Intermediate! I am so excited to be in Tomball and have absolutely enjoyed being a part of this family! I have taught previously at Klein High School and Keith Elementary. I love teaching and enjoy working with a variety of students and grade levels over the years! 
 
I graduated from the University of Houston - Downtown with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education.  I am certified as a generalist for grades EC-6, generalist for 4-8, 8-12 English, EC-12 Special Education, and I have my ESL supplemental certification. 
 
I have always lived in the Houston/Cypress area. I have always enjoyed coming to Tomball for the wonderful small-town feel and the charming little shops!
 
I am married and have 2 wonderful children. We have two dogs, a cat, and two guinea pigs. 
 
I believe that the key to my student's success in my classroom is constant communication between school and home. Please feel free to e-mail, call, or make an appointment to meet during my conference time.
