About Teachtown MKE

In Milwaukee, we value our teachers. To prove it, the Greater Milwaukee Committee formed Teachtown MKE at the request of Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Gregory Thornton. We are working with local partners to fuel a community dedicated to providing local educators with a warm welcome and continued gratitude. Our goals include:

  1. Showcasing Milwaukee as a city that appreciates its local educators
  2. Retaining and rewarding talented teachers
  3. Facilitating networks between educators and our community

Be sure to check out the Teachtown MKE 2013-14 Yearbook for all of our first-year accomplishments!

Educators fuel our future.

The least we can do is greet you with a welcome package. The Greater Milwaukee Committee is partnering with area businesses and representatives to create the Key to the City (the “Welcome Kit 2.0”). Keep an eye out for the new, even more robust package as the 2014-15 school year approaches.
