Rebecca Mieliwocki the 2012 National Teacher of the Year is scheduled to Keynote the NACCTEP Think Big National Conference in Dallas, TX

 

Rebecca Mieliwocki is a 7th grade English teacher at Luther Burbank Middle School, which houses 1100 students in grades 6-8. She has been teaching for 14 years and has spent nine years in her current position. Rebecca holds a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication from California Polytechnic State University and her professional clear credential in Secondary English Education from California State University Northridge (CSUN). She is the 2005 California League of Middle Schools Educator of the Year for Southern California, a 2009 PTA Honorary Service Award Winner, and a BTSA mentor, and has also served as a teacher expert for CSUN College of Education Panel titled "The ABC's of IEPs."

 

"Rebecca Mieliwocki is an inspiration to her students, to me, and to every California teacher. She brings enormous energy, enthusiasm, and optimism to teaching - a career that has never been more challenging, or more vital to our future," said California Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson. "She's the perfect choice for this tremendous honor, and I know she'll do an outstanding job of teaching the nation about the great things happening every day in California's public schools."

 

"Students learn best when they have the most enthusiastic, engaged teachers possible," says Mieliwocki. "I firmly believe that teachers must be held accountable for their students' success, from helping them meet personal or school-wide learning goals to achieving on district and state level assessments. Our students are our future, so we, their teachers, must do our best to inspire them and guide them to greatness."

NACCTEP Models of Success Guide

 

For this second round of Models of Success, NACCTEP is requesting submissions related to SERVICE LEARNING/FIELD EXPERIENCE.

 

Service learning/field experience, which may also be called practicums or internships, are components of courses that place students in learning environments where observing professional teachers at work and helping with identified tasks provides the student with site-based experience and act as an introduction to the profession of teaching. Extensive experiences in structured observations, tutoring, small group instruction, and whole class instruction are required to provide a meaningful developmental transition from theory to practical application. All experiences are designed to encourage professional and personal growth as prospective teachers.
