Teachers at Mickle Middle School are inviting heroes to their classrooms to teach students some valuable lessons. Veterans are sharing a motivational message. Here’s Tuesday, May 19ths “Excellence in Education” report.

Bobby Mueller served our country for four years in the Marine Corps and was deployed in Iraq for seven months. Now that he’s home this veteran is still serving by visiting students and sharing his stories of teamwork, dedication and sacrifice. The teachers say veterans are the perfect example of what it takes to be successful; not only in the classroom but also in life.

“They have integrity, they work together as a team and they represent their community and that’s a big thing as they go to high school. They’re going to get jobs and they’re going to be representing their community and their school,” says Amanda Mueller.

“I want them to understand what veterans have gone through and for them to better understand what it’s like to be a veteran,” says Bobby Mueller.

Every class period for the rest of the week a different veteran will come visit these students and share their stories.
