Mrs.Taylor, thank you for making History so interesting and fun for the students. My son has definitely enjoyed learning through projects and discussions in class. He looks forward to your class everyday! Truly appreciate all you do!

ALL CLUB SPONSORS

So many friendships are established outside of classes for students. Most seem to form through sports activity. How wonderful to have an alternative social option? THANK YOU to all the sponsors who offer their time and ENERGY to make this happen for these students!!

Three big cheers to all those who volunteer their time sponsoring clubs! Maybe I'm wrong, but I believe most students form close social bonds from sports activities outside of school. Providing these clubs provides a social outlet for kids who, for whatever reason, do not have that option.

FRANK O. – Co Worker 

MUIRLANDS STAFF

Just want to say thank you to all Muirlands staff for doing your part to create stability in such unstable times…for showing up day after day to provide consistency in nurturing and the education of our kids. Your commitment is powerful and we appreciate you very much!

KEEGAN D. – Parent

ALL OF CONNORS TEACHERS (PAST & PRESENT)

So many times I have thought it is such a shame the parents of these lucky students can't see what I see daily. I have told Connor's parents many times how the teaching staff at Muirlands are absolutely amazing. I cannot single out any particular teacher because they have all been truly incredible! Each teacher offers a whole unique experience that seems to inspire such enthusiasm...I should say here they are mostly Seminar kids. Even in non Seminar classes like art, music and PE (God I love our PE family) the teachers are simply magnificent. So much work and preparation goes into their classes and I have been blown away as an adult observer. It is a form of theater and Muirlands has an Oscar winning staff!!

FRANK O. – Colleague

REGINA TAYLOR

Dear Ms. Taylor. Thank you for making history so much fun. My daughter is loving it and so excited for her upcoming debate! We've waited eight long years to finally have you as a teacher! It's been well worth wait!!! You are the BEST!!!!

MIRA C. – Parent

LAURA PREISMAN

Ms. Preisman, I really appreciate the way you give my child very challenging work and also give her the proper instruction to complete the work that you assign on her own. It is so important for children to be independent, and I can see the look of determination in my child's eyes when she works on the assignments that you give to her.

KRISTOFER T. – Parent

Thank you, Mr T, for helping my son stay on top of his math work and for encouraging him to bring his best self to your class. We especially have appreciated you taking your time early in the morning to meet with him and us and to show him you care deeply about his progress.

APRIL MICOLINO

Despite being out on medical leave, Mrs M continues to grade work and provide helpful feedback to her students. I really appreciate her extra dedication to the kids. Furthermore, she has taken the time to find my son’s strengths and help him build on them. This is so important to him, as he has struggled in his English classes before and wasn’t able to connect as well with his teachers. Get well soon, Mrs Micolino— we miss you!

SUSAN W. – Parent

MICHAEL PHILLIPS

JEFF LUNA

Mr Luna, I have been so impressed with you and all the teachers at Muirlands. Coming from a private school in 7th grade during a very trying time with Covid you all went above and beyond. Reese has straight A's and is so proud of herself. She's made wonderful friends and is having a great experience. I think a lot of that is due to your leadership. My mother was president of the school board years ago and a founding member of High Tech High and served on the board for 23 years as a volunteer. Education is a big deal in our family and I have been singing Muirlands praises. Great job!

SHAWN R. – Parent

Thank you for the help this morning with Reya. She was having such a difficult time and I don't know what I would have done without your help. It was obvious you have been through this scenario before. Your skill was impressive. She was excited with everything today; from your help to all of the teachers. Thank you again!
