Milken National Educator Awards
As a little girl, Carla Bittner often played school, knowing early that teaching was her passion. She earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Houghton College, settling in New Jersey with her husband Michael. Carla began teaching at Evergreen Avenue School in Woodbury, and became involved in Schools Attuned, piloted the multiage program and acts as the building coordinator. Carla earned her master’s degree in reading education from Rowan University, just after the birth of her son Tyler. Currently she is working on her principal certification through Drexel University which she will complete shortly before the birth of her second son.
