Welcome to Gifted and Talented at Shawsheen.I am Mrs. Mueller, and I am excited to be a Gifted and Talented Specialist at Shawsheen.In addition to serving students at our school, I also work at Scott and Bella K-8 Academy.This is my first year in this position. For the last 5 years, I was an assistant principal inDistrict 6 first at Jackson and the last three years at Monfort. Prior to working as an assistant principal, I was a 4th and 5th grade teacher at McAuliffe Elementary for 18 years. All of these experiences have prepared me to work with teachers, students, and parents in my new position.Challenging students to do their absolute best is my passion. All students need to feel supported in their academic challenges. When students are pushing boundaries academically, they continue to learn and grow. In this struggle, students aquire new learning. As a GT specialist, I will work directly with teachers and students on higher level thinking opportunities.My husband and I have lived in Greeley for nearly thirty years. We have three children; two sons and a daughter. Our oldest is Macee Jo. She is a graduate of Greeley Central High School and Carthage College in Kenosha, WI. After graduating from college, she moved to Chicago and got married. Levi is our middle son. He just graduated from Northridge High School, and is attending Northwest Missiouri State University. Logan is our youngest, and is a fifth grader at McAuliffe Elementary.When we're together as a family, we enjoy gardening, bike riding, and traveling. One of our favorite cities to visit is Chicago. Not only because our daugher lives there, but it is a fun city for outdoor activities and museums. When we visit, we eat deep dish pizza and drive the shores of Lake Michigan.Shawsheen is the place to be, and I am thrilled to be here. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you or your child on their road to academic success.
