Hello my name is Mr. Schuller and this is my 22nd year in education. My teaching experience includes the Omaha Public Schools, Gilbert Public Schools, and now here in the Mesa Public Schools. I graduated from the University of Nebraska (Go Huskers!!) with a Bachelors in Education and Masters in Educational Administration. Currently I am working on my Doctorate in Educational Leadership, and will graduate in the summer of 2020.
My hobbies outside of school include DJing, riding mountain bikes, and working on my cars. Oh and yes my favorite football teams are the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Pittsburgh Steelers!!
I was born and raised in Nebraska, where both of my parents are exemplary educators. My teaching philosophy is basically whats best for kids. The Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships framework for all students is the backbone to my educational beliefs, and everything I do in the classroom.
Rigor: My expectation is a learning environment which stretches the individual learner to move beyond his/her current comfort zone, and grow as an independent learner.
Relevance: To the greatest extent possible I believe my lessons must be relevant to the experiences of the 21st century citizen. In addition, engagement of my students is of vital importance when examining both content and approach to learning.
Relationships: Its my core belief that students must be known as individuals, treated with respect and fairness at all times, and celebrated when expectations are met. The defining characteristic, for both myself and my students, is a classroom that values relationships as a prevalent sense of civility and respect.
Finally this year, 6th grade has once again departmentalized into Writing, Math, Science/Social Studies, and homeroom Reading... I am fortunate enough to be the Writing teacher, and my classes love to write... it really is all about the students with me!!
