A Letter from Interim Principal Cindy Mueller
Wednesday, September 7, 2016 10:15 PM


After proudly serving for twenty years as an administrator in Minneapolis Public Schools, I am honored to introduce myself as Interim Principal of Clara Barton Open School.
I most recently served as Principal of Waite Park School, where I retired in June of 2015 to care for my now late husband. In addition to my Secondary and Elementary Principal licenses, I also hold a Superintendent license.

I believe firmly in the progressive values that root Barton’s educational philosophy. Barton has a rich tradition of inquiry-based, student- centered learning, and I am excited to join the dedicated team of faculty and staff in preparing our students to be actively engaged members of our democracy.

In my short time here at Barton thus far, it has been clear to me that the Barton community is truly built on values of trust, collaboration, and mutual respect. In the spirit of that tradition, I encourage any and all of you to reach out, whether with questions about some aspect of your child’s school experience, or merely to introduce yourself. I look forward to working with and learning from our wonderful students, families, and faculty to ensure the best possible learning experience for all students here at Barton.

In community,
Cindy Mueller

Interim Principal
