 About Mrs. Brittany Pettry:
I received my Bachelor of Arts and Master Degree in Education from Heidelberg College and my Reading Endorsement from Ashland University. This year marks my 21st year of teaching with 9 of those at Mohawk Elementary. I have enjoyed teaching grades 1,4,5, and 6. Plus. I have had the opportunity to teach art for grades K-8 in the past which was one of my favorite things to do in my career.
I grew up in Tiffin and have always lived in the area. My husband, Rob, and I have three children. Our oldest son is a Mohawk graduate and our two younger children currently attend Mohawk.  You are likely to see us at many Mohawk events because our family is proud to be a part of the Mohawk family!
