NBCT Leader Kelly Mueller Passes Away

It is with great sadness we announce today that Linda Kelly Mueller, NBCT, passed away in her home in suburban St. Louis. Her passing was unexpected; she was assisting candidates for National Board Certification this spring and intended to attend this summer’s National Board Academy for network leaders.

Kelly Mueller was an amazing person and a friend and colleague to thousands of other teachers.

Since becoming an NBCT in 2001, she organized and coordinated several email networks and websites used by thousands of teachers who were themselves seeking and achieving National Board Certification. She was a warrior for National Board Certification, always helping others reach deeply into the standards on the path to improving their teaching and their students’ learning.

Kelly will be missed.
