Our daughter’s personal academic experience at Willow Springs was the polar opposite of any previous experiences. Mrs. Mueller’s team chose to see the student and assess the student’s needs! Not only did the Willow Springs academic team address the student’s need but successfully meet that student’s need! Our daughter was having difficulty transitioning from one class to the next the way the system there was designed. So accommodations were made to streamline her classes to eliminate the need to refocus with each subject! With the attentive team there she returned home caught up on her assignments and was able to complete her senior year on time! This afforded her the ability to attend her High School graduation ceremony last month. And like many families we don’t know if our child will even be alive on graduation day. I am sure you can imagine the joy our family experienced that day and the accomplishment our daughter felt as a direct result to Mrs. Muller and her academic team! We invited her to attend the online live ceremony so she could experience all the “feels”! Seriously, I did save the best for last. Mrs. Mueller personally spent countless hours with her high school senior helping her ascertain her SAT scores and applying to the University of Alabama. And, the cherry on top was when Mrs. Muller set up a zoom call so the three of us could celebrate through tears of joy when our daughter received her acceptance letter into the University of Alabama’s Music Therapy Program as a direct result of Mrs. Mueller’s effort and countless hours! Our daughter’s heart’s desire is to help other patients like herself through music at the very same facilities she was once a patient in.
