About Lori Mueller
Lori Mueller is a 3rd grade Elementary teacher at Bowler Elementary School in Bowler, Wisconsin. Lori has taught at Bowler in the Shawano district for 22 years, and received the 2010 Herb Kohl Fellowship award.
Principal Kathy DeLorme said Mueller always goes above and beyond expectations, and has been a bridge between the community and the school. “Lori’s done a lot with the Stockbridge-Munsee tribe, from tribal training in summer to having classes help illustrate books for the tribe,” she said. “In the summer we can’t pay her enough, she triples and quadruples the budget we give her to make summer school activities fun and rewarding for the kids.”

Act 31 on the UW Campus
The Act's greatest impact on programs at the University of Wisconsin, is that each teacher seeking a license from the state must have instruction in American Indian history, culture and tribal sovereignty, Meeting the requirement of Act 31 is more than an obligation for certification; it represents our university’s commitment to serve our diverse communities and the American Indian tribes and bands who reside within its borders. The Act 31 Coordinator connects with various partners in the School of Education and across the State of Wisconsin to develop the Act 31 implementation plan for the School of Education.
