Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Catherine Fiorito
My name is Catherine (Katie) Fiorito and I am the new music teacher at Highlands Elementary School. I have been teaching for 7 years now and before coming to Highlands, I have held music teaching positions in K-5th elementary general music, 6th-8th grade middle school band, and high school instrumental music which included the band program, beginning guitar, and AP music theory.
I started playing Piano in 1st grade and have been a musician for most of my life. (Learning new instruments is a favorite hobby of mine... next up is the Banjo!) My Bachelor's degree is in Piano Performance, but I have also played the Trumpet since 4th grade beginning band and am a product of the California school band program. I am passionate about music and the benefit it brings to our collective human experience. I feel so lucky that I get to share this passion and create music with the young scholars at Pittsburg Unified!
