Staff Spotlight: Ms. Deb Witte!

Deb Witte is very excited to be working as a Job Coach and is looking forward to working with the faculty, staff, and the students at ACLD Tillotson and the ShYFT house. Deb had an ESY position at the ShYFT House this summer and was drawn to the mission as well as the dedication and support she saw for both students and staff.  Professionally, Deb has enjoyed various teaching positions ranging from a school librarian to a literacy specialist here in Pittsburgh. She has earned degrees from the University of Minnesota, Kent State University, and the University of Pittsburgh. On a personal note, she is originally from Akron, Ohio. She has two children that she’s very proud of. One is a graduate of Duquesne University, and her daughter will graduate from Seton La Salle High School, in May 2024.  In her free time, she sings with the Pan Orthodox Choir of Pittsburgh, volunteers, goes to the movies, visits her favorite coffee shops, and spends time with family and friends.
