AVIANO, Italy — Vicenza Middle School teacher Angela Wilson fell just short of winning the National Teacher of the Year competition this week.

Wilson was among four finalists for the competition and attended an event at the White House on Tuesday hosted by President Barack Obama. Rebecca Mieliwocki, a seventh-grade teacher from Burbank, Calif., was selected National Teacher of the Year.

Wilson’s selection as a finalist was the first time a Department of Defense Education Activity teacher has reached that level, according to DODEA. The 37-year-old initially was named top teacher in the DODDS-Europe Mediterranean District and then for DODDS-Europe before representing DODEA in the national competition, which has entrants from every U.S. state.
