CONGRATULATING MIROSLABA ``LILI'' VELO ON BEING NAMED 2013 OUTSTANDING 
                 SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER OF THE YEAR

  (Mr. SWALWELL of California asked and was given permission to address 
the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. SWALWELL of California. Many students often remember that one 
engaging and empowering teacher who inspired them to change the course 
of their lives. I am proud to recognize one of those teachers, Ms. 
Miroslaba ``Lili'' Velo, a social studies teacher from Hayward's 
Tennyson High School in my congressional district.
  Ms. Velo was named the 2013 Outstanding Senior High School Teacher of 
the Year by the California Council for Social Studies. As the chair of 
the Social Studies Department at Tennyson High School, Ms. Velo is a 
true leader in advancing social studies education by teaching educators 
in her high school and across California how to engage students with 
new and innovative teaching methods. This is something we will need as 
we continue to lead our students to be competitive in a changing global 
economy.
  Ms. Velo is a wonderful example of the most dedicated teachers from 
across the Nation, who strive every day to better the lives of their 
students and assist the teachers around them.
  Once again, I congratulate Ms. Velo on receiving this well-deserved 
recognition.
