    Ten things to know about
    Mrs. Wittkamp:
    1. I love spending time with my husband, seven year old daughter, Ava, and four year old son, Ryan (and also our adopted puppy, Jada!).  Family is very important to me.
    2. My husband and I are huge RUTGERS fans!  We met in our last year of undergrad there.
    3. I have my bachelor's degree in English and my master's in English Education (K-12).  I received both degrees at Rutgers.
    4. I grew up in Monroe.  MTMS is where I attended high school.
    5. While Rutgers is my #1, I also root for my Giants and Yankees.  (Unfortunately, my husband is a Phillies and Eagles fan.)
    6. I try to run 5Ks as often as possible, and I've run two half marathons.  I never loved running, even though I ran track in high school, but I now consider myself a runner. This past year I've been rehabbing from a running injury which required surgery. It's taught me a lot about resilience (which has been something I've needed a lot of during these unique times!).
    7. I love food, and I really enjoy cooking, which is probably why I have to run so much :)
    8. I can be a bit of a TV junkie (Big Brother, The Amazing Race, Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy, the list goes on...).  Friends is my all-time favorite show.
    9. Although reading and writing are my passion, I really like math, especially algebra.
    10. I love teaching. It's not only what I do, but it's who I am.  I am grateful for students who teach me things every day. (I can't believe the 2021-2022 school year is my 15th year of teaching!!)
