Amy Sitze


Amy Sitze has been volunteering with Adult Basic Education for 16 years.  

Amy is pictured here with her grandmother, who was a Polish immigrant.  Amy says, 'Because of my admiration for my grandparents and how persistent and strong they were in the face of poverty, language difficulties, and culture shock, I want to give back by helping other immigrants and refugees. I love working with Minneapolis Public Schools adult learners because they teach me what it means to be strong, resilient, flexible, and motivated.’  

Amy’s dedication to ELL students is reflected in the enthusiasm that they have when spending time with her.  

Amy, thank you for your commitment to and support of our immigrant and ELL students!
