We all know that teachers do some of the most important work in our society … but perceptions about teachers and teaching are not always so kind.
The central importance of teachers to the success of our youth and our region’s continuing economic and social development is misunderstood or, often, overlooked.
As a result, the Education Deans of Greater Milwaukee (EDGM), a collective comprised of deans from nine area higher education institutions, has instituted a celebration honoring the work of teachers in the Milwaukee area. The event is open to the public and all who support the work of teachers are encouraged to attend.
Join us for an evening of celebration honoring outstanding teachers in the Greater Milwaukee area.
