My name is Angel Pittman, and I am excited to continue my years of work with Cooperative Baptist Fellowship as field personnel to my work as an Educational Advocate.
Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, I received my Bachelor of Science in Education from Baylor University. I always knew I would work with students and enjoyed my years of classroom teaching. For the last twenty years, I have served vulnerable children in central Texas, Detroit, and now in Miami through creating impactful out-of-school educational programming and creating sustainable funding streams for that work.
I have a twice-exceptional child and have supported parents in their special education journey for years. I have received my Board Certification for Advocacy in Special Education (BCASE) from The National Association of Special Education Teachers (NASET) and the American Academy of Special Education Professionals (AASEP).
On the weekends, you can find me hanging out with my amazing husband of twenty-five years, my great sons, tangled in yarn crocheting something, drinking coffee with friends, or reading a good book.
I have had the privilege to speak on radio shows as well as retreats and conferences, corporate gatherings, civic organizations, and chambers of commerce events. Additionally, I have led cultural training for Teach for America and City Year for several years.
If you are interested in having me as a speaker, workshop leader, or trainer, please contact me.
