Burbank teacher, Rebecca Mieliwocki, was honored as the 2012 National Teacher of the Year by President Obama at the White House today. The 7th grade English teacher at Luther Burbank Middle School brought along her parents who are both public school teachers as well. President Obama praised Mieliwocki as one of the best: “When kids finish a year in Rebecca’s class, they’re better readers and writers than when they started. But even more than that, they know how important they are. And they understand how bright their futures can be. And they know that if they work at it, there’s no limit to what they can achieve.”
