Hello! My name is Alissa Witzke and this is my 6th year teaching ELL at Horace Mann. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your children!

I am the full-time teacher this year, so even if your child is not in my class, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I speak some Spanish, but am happy to use an interpreter for families who speak other languages.

In my free time I enjoy reading, writing music, playing piano, singing, and gardening. In the summers I love to go camping in national parks and state forests around the United States. I enjoy visiting abroad - I hope to visit more countries in the years to come!

Hi! My name is Raquel MacKay. This is my third year teaching ELL at Mann Elementary. Before teaching here, I taught ELL in West Liberty Elementary for two years. I am excited to be part of a wonderful community here in Iowa City. I will be at Lemme Elementary in the mornings and Mann Elementary in the afternoons. 

Along with teaching English, I love teaching Spanish. I teach an after school Spanish class at Mann Elementary for 1st-3rd graders.

My hobbies include kayaking, going on bike rides, making jewelry, and Latin dance. I love to explore new places during the summers.

I’m looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your children! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at 319-930-6243.
