Ms. Fata

Hello! My name is Lexi Fata and I am so excited to be your student’s kindergarten teacher for the 2020-2021 school year.  I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2019, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.  After completing my student teaching here at Wines, I was so honored to join the community as an official member of the kindergarten team.  I am so excited to be starting my second year at Wines in my classroom with your students.  Kindergarten is such an amazing grade and I am so thrilled to be a part of your student’s special journey this year.

I am originally from Livonia, Michigan and currently live in Livonia.  I spent my four years in school in Ann Arbor and plan to move back within the next year.  I truly love Ann Arbor and consider it one of my homes away from home.  When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and hanging out with my dog, Baci.  I also love visiting the beach and being in the water, either swimming or snorkeling.  I can’t wait to learn more about your students.  I look forward to an awesome year together!

Ms. Wittmann

I was raised in Nashville, Tennessee and moved to West Bloomfield, Michigan just over fifteen years ago with my dad, mom and younger brother. I love my big, loud family - I am a Chaldean-Mexican and because of my unique culture, I particularly enjoy celebrating my students' special cultures as well. I love to read, spend time with my little cousins, and practice Bikram Yoga. I have a dog whose name is Stella; she is a toy fox terrier. I cannot wait for the 2019-2020 school year to begin!
