Rebecca Mieliwocki, was named the 2012 Teacher of the Year and honored today by President Obama at  a White House ceremony. She went to law school, among other things in her career. To me, this transition is not peculiar. Lawyers are, after all, teachers. They tell stories to persuade jurors and judges for the benefit of their clients. Law is a helping and caring profession, just as is teaching. Ms. Rebecca Mieliwocki took that same talent and focused it on young people in Burbank, CA. Congratulations to her.
