Chorus has gone downhill since she left! A lot of people including me stopped doing chorus because she left. She was the reason why everyone liked being in chorus and we all miss her stories she would tell us and she wasn't afraid to be herself while still being able to teach.

A very pleasant person and great to look up to. She will be missed at New Fairfield High School and the music department as a whole is sad to see her go. To be honest we are proud to watch her move on and achieve more in her career. Personally she has helped me through situations that I never thought a teacher could assist me with. I appreciate her more than I can put into words. I hope her new students are as excited to have her as I am to watch her accomplish more. Enjoy her, you'll be hooked.

Mrs. Wittmann is absolutely amazing. She is a great musician and all of our choirs (middle school, high school, and chamber) perform excellently under her teaching. She goes above and beyond. Our full, non-auditioned choir had the chance to perform at Carnegie hall with many auditioned choirs. She has great relationships with all of her students and really connects to all of them and knows them very personally. She is the best choir director and music teacher any school could have.

She's a nice teacher. Even though with some people she has a closer relationship with than others she doesn't really seem to favor anyone. She does get off topic and tell stories but it's only because if we sing for a whole 80 minutes we will stress our voices.

She is one of my favorites. I just joined chorus this year and she has taught me so much about music. She doesn't really pick favorites, but she does have closer relationships to some students. However, she has treated me with alot of respect and I do the same. Take chorus to enjoy the love of music and she will expand your knowledge and love for it.

I'm a NFHS alumni and I can honestly say that Mrs. Wittman was one of my favorite teachers by far. And for those of you who say she played favorites, you were probably one of those people who took her class simply as an elective, and expressed lack of interest/respect. I observed quite a few of those people in class. Mrs. Wittman connected with her students, cared about their well being and success, and instilled the passion and excitement that she effortlessly represented every day.

I have to be honest, she can be a nice person, but she picks and chooses who she likes which is not what a teacher should be doing. She needs to pick up on that aspect and not be so judgemental.

She acts like a three year old sometimes and she picks favorites and it definitely shows. Everyone in my group of friends can't stand her as a person or as a teacher.

She has gone from being slightly insane to psychotic. She is condescending to the point where she actually causes students to get upset, but she doesnt care. Half the time when shes teaching she gets off track and the rest of the time is spent trying to intimidate us into caring. I love music, but AP Theory is my least favorite class of the day. How she can make about 7 out of the 10 students in the class who loved music hate it is beyond me. Students who love singing drop chorus jst to get away from her.
