    It's so exciting be starting the 2022-23 school year. I am Mrs. Mueller and I am excited to be back as the Gifted and Talented Specialist at Romero K-8 for the fifth year.  In addition to serving students at our school, I also work at Jackson, Shawsheen, and Scott D6 Online Elementary. This year I am also serving as the Gifted and Talented Facilitator for D6.  My background in education is very diverse and spans to nine different schools.  I have worked as a paraprofessional, classroom teacher, assistant principal, and now, a gifted and talented specialist. All of these experiences have prepared me to work with teachers, students, and parents to support our gifted and talented population. 

    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 acquire 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 over 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, is married and lives in Chicago.  Levi is our middle son.  He's a Northridge High School graduate and is a senior at Northwest Missiouri State University.  Logan is our youngest and is a freshman at Northridge High School.

    My favorite activity is paddle boarding. When we're together as a family, we enjoy hiking, gardening, bike riding, and traveling.  One of our favorite cities to visit is Glenwood Springs.  When there, we enjoy the hot springs, skiing, riding the gondola and walking along the river.

    Romero 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.

    For information on understanding giftedness, identification, and websites for parents, educators, and students, visit our Gifted and Talented section on the district GT link.

    My primary responsibilities are:

    To collect data and identify students whose abilities and talents require special programming. 

    To work closely with teachers to ensure that they have the resources and support they need when working with gifted and talented students in their classrooms. 

    To partner with students and their families to support student strengths, challenges, and personal goals. 

    And to work directly with gifted and talented students on extensions and projects designed with their needs in mind.
