Hello Students and Families,
My name is Amy Wittmann and I teach third grade at this amazing school. I absolutely LOVE what I do. I have worked with children since the young age of ten years old. My mother is an early childhood educator and leader and her passion and excitement for this career path was my inspiration!
This is my nineteenth year teaching in the Saint Paul School District. I began my teaching career as a substitute teacher for three years in SPPS. In 2004, I landed my first official position as a first grade teacher at Paul and Sheila Wellstone Elementary. I was at Wellstone for eight years when I got the opportunity to teach Science at Global Arts Plus (Formerly Linwood Monroe Arts Plus) in 2012. From the science room, I transitioned back into the classroom in 2016. This will be my fourth year teaching third grade and I absolutely LOVE IT! Third Grade Rocks!
I attended Central Lakes College in Brainerd, Minnesota where I received my undergraduate degree. I then attended Bemidji State University where I received my degree in Elementary Education. I continued my education shortly after at Saint Mary's University where I received my Masters in Education degree.
My husband Tony and I have been married for 14 years and we share a beautiful daughter that is a fourth grader here at Global Arts Plus. We also have a "zoo" at our house. We have 2 tabby/bengal cats named Milo and Elsa. We have a 2 year old silver lab named Lucy. We also have several fish, a turtle named Shelly, a crested gecko named Coco, and a gerbil named Clover.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy taking long walks with my family, snuggling with my two cats, doing yoga and pilates, running on my elliptical machine, reading books and magazines, scrapbooking, sewing, gardening, and riding my bicycle. Believe it or not I actually enjoy doing laundry as well!
I am looking forward to getting to know you and your children this year. We will learn so much, make many memories, and grow faster than you can blink. Enjoy every moment of your school year.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.
