Ms. Mary Mielzarek will be retiring at the close of this school year after 24 years of teaching business/DECA classes at North High.

Unlike your typical teacher, who works in multiple locations over the course of a career, Ms. Mielzarek has only taught at North. “I even student taught there!” she points out.

She did have other jobs before getting into education, however. She was a manufacturer’s rep in the Food Service and Sanitary Maintenance industry. The products she helped to sell included such brands as Rubbermaid, 3M, and Colgate-Palmolive.

Ms. Mielzarek looks back on “many, many memories” of her time at North. She has enjoyed working here.

Although she feels this is the right time to finish her teaching career, Ms. Mielzarek does not have specific, immediate plans for after retirement. “My husband has been retired for over two years, and it’s time to join him in his retirement,” she comments.

As for the people she leaves behind, Ms. Mielzarek wishes us all the best as we move into the future: “I would like to thank the students and staff for a wonderful career at North High.”

Congratulations, Ms. Mary Mielzarek, and thank you!!
