My name is Kristin Pitrucha. I moved to Mongomery in June 2017. I am married to a wonderful man named Marshall. I also have two children, Landon and Jet. My family and I enjoy being outdoors!

This is my third year teaching in Montgomery ISD. I am very excited to be a part of this district. Before teaching in MISD, I taught fourth grade in Kilgore ISD as well as Tatum ISD. I have also taught PRE-K!

Welcome to 5th grade!
