Some teaching rolls that Coach Mueller plays in his classroom are being open to life experiences and helping the students with their work.

Some of the things I saw coach Mueller do in my interview was writing someone a pass to the restroom or telling someone to go to the office because the student was called. The biggest reward from teaching that coach Mueller has received for himself was watching the emotions on a kids face when they grasped the idea and finally got the concept.


Coach Mueller voiced that self motivation needed in this job is about an 8 with 10 being the highest. This is coach Muellers fourteenth year of teaching at Elgin High School.Coach Mueller announced "I'm very excited and enthusiastic about teaching the youth this year".
