Mrs. Shirley Pituch
I have been teaching first grade since 2003 in the Oxford Area School District. Two of my three daughters are Oxford graduates with my youngest in 12th grade. My favorite place to be is outside. I enjoy teaching my first graders about farming, where their food comes from and giving them the hands on experience of growing food in our school gardens. My students are involved with the start to finish process of gardening with 80% of what is grown in our six raised bed gardens given to the Oxford Food Bank. The remaining produce is used as taste testing in the classroom.
