Music that Describes Kayla

Kayla Muffley was nominated by Shirley Gergar, the parent of a student.

"Ms. Kayla is a world changer," said Gergar. "Our son, like so many others, was so scared for school, but we didn’t know it would come into a completely different territory. He has ADHD and autism, and school wasn’t looking like it was going to happen for him until I found BHA...That building holds the biggest treasure in the world! Mrs. Muffley completely changed my son. I went from walking him in the building and staying for 15 minutes every day, to dropping him off at the drop off line, to having him do what seemed impossible and ride the bus! It's all because of this woman. She has gone above and beyond to help my son learn his ABC's and how to spell. She shows this care and compassion to each of her students while juggling IEP’s and teaching five different grade levels! I don’t know where we would be without Mrs. Muffley! She is truly a diamond in this world!"
