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 eighteenth 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 Linwood Monroe in 2012. From the science room, I transitioned back into the classroom. This will be my third 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 13 years and we share a beautiful daughter that is a third grader here at LMAP. We also literally have a "zoo" at our house. We have 2 tabby/bengal cats named Milo and Elsa. We have a 1 year old silver lab named Lucy. We have many fish, a turtle named Shelly, and 2 gerbils named Thumper and 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 eliptical 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.
