On behalf of the Glendale Unified School District Board of Education, we salute Rebecca Mieliwocki of neighboring Burbank Unified School District for her selection as one of four finalists for National Teacher of the Year.
It is gratifying to see one of our region's many outstanding classroom teachers being recognized as California's Teacher of the Year (“Burbank instructor among final four for National Teacher of the Year,” Dec. 21).
Mieliwocki, an English teacher at Burbank's Luther Middle School, is an inspiration to all of us in public education. Her colleagues in Glendale want to express our pride in her excellence and accomplishment.
We send her our best wishes for the national competition in March.
Richard M. Sheehan
