3rd Grade

Mrs. Laureen Witt


My name is Laureen Witt.  I have been teaching at Mary of Lourdes since 1989.  I teach third grade math, religion, art, science, social, reading, writing, and spelling.  


I was blessed to attend a Catholic elementary school, and by second grade I dreamed of growing up to teach children about their faith and the world. After I graduated from SCSU my dream came true as I began my teaching career here in Little Falls.  

It is such a pleasure to see my students grow in their skills and knowledge each year.  It is also very fulfilling to see them embrace and grow in their faith.  I feel that Mary of Lourdes School provides a nurturing environment and through the K-8 experience offers a solid foundation for students to go on to be amazing scholars for life.  


My husband Ron and I are proud parents of three young men, Ben, Jordan, and Logan.  Each of them attended Mary of Lourdes. They have fond memories and a deep appreciation of their educational experience at Mary of Lourdes School.
