Both of my daughters have had the pleasure to have this amazing, dynamic, caring, selfless Kindergarten teacher. She takes the time to learn each students strengths and areas where growth can occur. She gives that one on one attention, going above and beyond. I had the privilege of seeing her in action on a few field trips. Her students were so well behaved, they walked off the bus single file, kept their hands to their self, and listened. When you get to an exciting place like a Discovery center, it's pretty hard to contain yourself. She respected her students and they respected her back. Her love and care towards the students was above and beyond what any parent would also wish for. She was nurturing, yet firm, loving each child like her own. She cherishes the time she was given each day and worked tirelessly to help them grow, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Last year Ms Mueller took part in Harvards new after school program. She planned to host 10 students on a gardening section. Within 36 hours 38 students signed up. Instead of turning children away so organized helpers, and allowed her class to expand to 40. This session was very well received, giving many students opportunities they normally do not have. They played with dirt, planted flowers and vegetables for at school and at home. All those awesome Pinterest ideas related to gardening that are epic fails at home, were properly executed through this program. Ms Mueller is also a volunteer in the community, on the Harvard Education Foundation Board that provides financial resources to the schools and teachers. I can continue to go on and on, please let me know what I can do to help her become honored by Star as a teacher of the month. - Aimee Knop
