A couple hundred area teachers are getting a nice thank-you to start off the school year.
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Education asked visitors at the Wisconsin State Fair to sign a banner with a note for their favorite teacher.
Almost 200 notes, filling eight banners, were collected during UWM Day at the Fair. Teachers mentioned ranged from preschool through university faculty. The School of Education is following up with a letter to each teacher letting them know their students were thinking about them over the summer.
Pictured here with some of the banners are those who helped out with the project. Hillary Vara (left) and Jennifer Busch (right) are doctoral students in administrative leadership. Rob Longwell-Grice (center) is recruitment & scholarship coordinator in the Office of Student Services.
