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.
Witt is a very understanding teacher, she is sweet, and sometimes scary, but in my opinion she is very helpful and very fun.
She was one of my AMA teachers. She's devoted, knowledgeable, and she pushes you to do your best. she's the ideal version of a music/arts teacher. I wish I could be in her chorus sometimes.
Tends to play favorites, talks about students with other students behind their backs and seems frustrated in her personal life.
I love Witt. She is always there for her students (if she likes you) and truly cares for theit well being
Excellent theory teacher, but she plays favorites way too much in her chorus classes, especially concerning who gets into Chamber.
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.
Music Theory is the hardest class I've ever taken, but it's also my favorite. I'm thinking of doing chorus because it'll be easier, but I really like MRs Whittmann
Mrs Wittmann can be moody, but we all are sometimes. Overall, she's a really good teacher and someone who genuinely cares about her students. She will be there for you if you need her, no matter what.
Funny that the June 29 review was the day report cards showed up! HA! Witt actually makes people DO stuff to get grades in her class (I think someone didn't do the computer).
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.
I love Witt! She's tied for my favorite teacher ever (only paralleled by Mr. King). She makes chorus really fun, and really takes a personal interest in us. She's always there if you have problems. 2005
Mrs. Wittman is an amazing chorus teacher. Shes taught me everything I Know. Sometimes she gets annoying because she makes fun of her other students to be cool with some of them.
Witt is the best chorus teacher in the whole world. She is easy totalk to and she is willing to work with you if you need any help. Witt rox!
Lum is the best Choris teacher ever. Her songs are usually very cool and she makes it fun for us. When she gets mad watch out and don't get in her way!!
Lum is one of the best teacher that I have ever had. she is a hillarious person. But when she is mad...Watch Out!! :)
Lum can be tough, but she does try pretty hard to make things easy for us. The one thing no one can deny is that she actually enjoys being degrading. It's just who she is, lol.
Witt is one of the best teachers in the school Music teachers should always be close to their students because they need the most help in order to excel. Witt i
All I can say is she plays major favorites and she can be really cold sometimes.
She's too worried about how her "good" students view her. Plays favorites and can have a really bad attitude. She's changed.
a good choral teacher. however, she is the ABSOLUTE LAZIEST person I have ever met and if she doesn't like you, be prepared to feel the ceaseess wrath.
She is nice but too much a "friend". i wish she was more of a teacher. she thinks she can say anything to you but she cant.
One the best teachers i've had. Yea, she gets inapropriate at times, but she makes it fun and easy to learn the songs, especially the ones in Latin.
Cannot be respected as a teacher because she tries too hard to be a friend to her students which results in her being inappropriate and confusing to students
She is very caring. One of the few teachers in the school you could talk to about anything.
We love you Witt.All of you unsupportive peeps out there have no idea what u r talking about.Music is cool so is Witt maybe u r just unappreciative of the arts.
At first, she seems scary and mean. Once you know her, she is sooo funny and sweet and really just the type of teacher who you'll visit just to talk...i luv lum
She inspired me to go on in music. I will be graduating college in May with a music ed degree, because of her. Shes great in choir, chamber and theory!SHE ROCKS
this is the best class if you try 2 sing and mrs wittmann is interesting and makes sense when you listen
Sometimes going to that class keeps me sane. Mrs.Wittmann is a good teacher who makes the class interesting and fun.
She is an awesome teacher!...I look foward to her class even tho she is a bit too energetic in the morning!...she is just overall a wonderful person!=)
She is what every teacher should be. She has the love to teach and evey one should be like her.
She's unusual, but a lot of fun and really knows her stuff.
Mrs. Whittmann is an awsome teacher and is one of my favorites. Every day I look forward to going to her class!
She has been one of the best teachers I have had throughout high school. She may be a bit abusive haha pencils but she knows what she is talking about.
A bit wierd but a good teacher overall.Always willing to help with music on her free time. Just get to know her, and shes alright.
annoying but knows what she is talking about--listen!!
I felt at the time that she was really mean but she made me a better singer
She thought too highly of herself and those in chamber-theyre not that special
