The Education Deans of Greater Milwaukee (EDGM) is proud to partner with the Faye McBeath Foundation since 2013 to recognize teachers in the Greater Milwaukee community doing extraordinary work in our schools. In 2017, Celebration of Teachers and Teaching will highlight educators who are doing exemplary work with early childhood education.
The Celebration of Teaching event is designed to shine a bright spotlight on women and men who devote their professional lives to fostering the learning and development of PK-12 students in our region. In addition, the Celebrate Teachers & Teaching now recognizes the 'lifetime achievements' of an individual who through their significant contributions to the field of education have helped close the achievement gap and warrant the respect of educational thought leaders in our community.
Any PK-12 educators from individual disciplines will be considered. Nominations can be made online for the Early and Advanced Career Teachers or the Champion of Education awards.
The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist.' Maria Montessori
