It's been an exciting road for Burbank Unified teacher Rebecca Mieliwocki, named this week as a 2012 National Teacher of the Year finalist. The Luther Middle School English teacher was given Los Angeles County honors in October and named as one of five California nominees for the national award shortly after. On Thursday, state officials proudly announced Mieliwocki had been named one of four finalists for the big prize. She modestly credited the district, saying officials, administrators and her colleagues have created a place where teachers can truly thrive.

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.

Mieliwocki, an English teacher at Burbank's Luther Middle School, is an inspiration to all of us in public education.

In your Oct. 30 editorial "Where were the questions about New Horizons?" you asked, how were the signs missed? Signs of financial trouble for New Horizons were not missed. Those favored by city officials are exempted from careful vetting. Melanie Hickens' articles, "Developer accused of fraud," "Housing issues weighed," and "Horizons' troubles bared" give readers the ugly truth about our city government. Good articles, great reporting. Something improper is taking place in Glendale: the mismanagement of public funds.

Gary Moskowitz A 20-day visit to Glendale got cut short this week when six Japanese exchange students and their teacher were ordered home after Bush issued his 48-hour war deadline to Iraq. The group of students from Nisshin High School in Osaka, Japan, had been attending classes at Glendale High School and sightseeing for eight days. They got the news while swinging at their first "Hello Kitty" pinata at the home of a host family. "We were all upset, and there were many tears and hugs before they left," said Cathi Lander, an English teacher at Glendale High and exchange-student advisor.

I was contacted by an author to contribute an essay to a book on influential teachers. No, I'm not one of the influential teachers; rather, I am writing about one of my influential teachers. John Sage, my advanced 10th grade English teacher, impacted my life more than any other teacher I had. While a very good teacher, what I remember most about him has little to do with his lesson plans.   I was impressed by the way he approached his job. He was the best dressed teacher at Burroughs High School, always wearing a suit jacket, tie, and shiny shoes.

A statewide class-action lawsuit filed by a group of California teachers and professors against the California Teachers Assn. has local teachers baffled as to why their peers would be working against them. The lawsuit, filed on Thursday, seeks to bar union officials from enacting a mandatory $60-per-teacher dues increase to help fund political action campaigns, including those targeted at countering Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's propositions affecting education.

There are two kinds of people in the world: people who answer the question "How are you?" with "I'm good" and people who send me e-mails to say how annoyed they are with all those other people. It should be "well," these folks say, not "good. " This discussion is so common in my world that I can give an answer from memory and even cite my source from memory. My response goes like this: If you look up the word "good" in "Webster's New World College Dictionary," you'll see that, among its many definitions is "healthy.
