Welcome to our Classroom Website

    My name is Andy Pitzl, and I have been teaching for 19 years. I spent the first seven years of my teaching career teaching science to seventh- and eighth-grade students in the Minneapolis school district, and have been at Mississippi for the past 12 years. At Mississippi, I taught one year of general fourth-grade, three years of fourth-grade science and writing, three years of third-grade, one year of third-grade science and writing, one year as the fifth-grade social studies and science teacher, and this year I will be teaching science and math in fourth- and fifth-grade.

    I have been married to my wife, Diana, for 18 years. We have two daughters, Hailey and Cassidy, a chocolate lab named Ruby, and a black lab named Hank.  Hailey is in tenth grade and Cassidy is in seventh grade. Both of my daughters play traveling softball and basketball, so much of my "off time" involves driving them from game to game. Besides sports, my other hobbies are hunting, fishing, or anything outdoors.

    Thank you for your help this year. I truly look forward to meeting you and your child. I am very passionate about teaching and helping the students in our school.
