Future teacher Moeller learns how to build a softball program

Like most college seniors, Brianne Moeller is concocting a plan that will land her a job.

The University of Illinois Springfield softball player, who will earn her degree after completing a student teaching requirement in the fall, hopes her sports background and knowledge increases her marketability. She figures a school could kill two birds with one stone by hiring someone who can teach and coach.

Moeller has been a valuable piece in the puzzle for UIS for several seasons. She also was a standout in softball, volleyball and basketball at Nashville High School.

“I think that’ll help me get a teaching job,” she said. “Also, I don’t know how my life would be without sports. I think that will be a good transition. I’ll still be a part of it in some kind of way.”

Moeller was featured in a April 22, 2010, article in the State Journal-Register.
