Staff and Teacher Appreciation Week!
Frontier Schools celebrated their staff the entire first week of May in recognition of Teacher Appreciation Week. To show our appreciation for all that they do, small gifts and catered meals were provided each day of the week. This was just a small token to show our admiration and gratitude to those that teach our children each day.
2022-23 District Teacher of the Year
At Frontier School of Excellence, we have the privilege of having some remarkable educators as part of our faculty. One such educator is Ms. Alexis Mueller, who serves as the lead of the eighth-grade PLC team. Her dedication to her students, her empathy towards them, and her effective classroom management skills are what makes her an excellent educator.
In addition to being an excellent classroom teacher, Ms. Mueller is an equally outstanding PLC lead. She excels in team development, helping her fellow educators create SMART goals, involving parents in their child's education, planning the 8th grade graduation ceremony, and organizing field trips to enhance learning experiences. Her attention to detail and organizational skills allow her to lead her team through every task with ease.
Congratulations, Ms. Mueller!
