Help Us Celebrate Teachers and Teaching

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 partnered with MKEfoodies, a local food events organization, to create 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. Members of the public are encouraged to attend!

Enjoy small plates from 11 of Milwaukee’s best restaurants and a cash bar from Great Lakes Distillery. Radio Milwaukee DJ, Dori Zori, will also be present to spin records and get everyone in a celebratory mood!

All attendees will have the opportunity to sign a large banner, expressing their thanks to Milwaukee area teachers. At 8 p.m. there will be a brief awards presentation honoring 10 Milwaukee area teachers for their dedication and service to urban education.
