Event description

Description

We all know that teachers and school leaders do some of the most important work in our society. The importance of those involved in education--as new teaching professionals or those who have worked in education over a career spanning many years--is key to student success and our region's continuing economic and social development. For some time, the work of educators has been undervalued.

As a result, the Education Deans of Greater Milwaukee (EDGM), a consortium of nine area public and private higher education institutions, is hosting its fifth-annual celebration honoring the work of teachers and teaching in the Milwaukee area. The spotlight this year for our Early and Advanced Teaching Awards is on excellence in early childhood education, as well as honoring a Champion of Education. The Faye McBeath Foundation, the Herzfeld Foundation and Next Door have partnered with EDGM in recognition of teachers and teaching.

This event is open to the public. All who support teachers and education are encouraged to attend. Help us honor our 2017 winners: Early-Career and Advanced-Career teachers for excellence in early childhood education. In addition, we will be awarding the 2017 Champion of Education award for significant contributions to driving improvements in teaching and learning.
