MPS celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher and StudentThank you to every one of the more than 5,000 teachers who work for MPS! Our students, families, and the community appreciate the dedication and hard work that teachers put in every day.

Teaching can be a balancing act of academics, safety, behavior, and student needs, but the majority of teachers say they love their jobs. As a teacher, every day is different and every year starts fresh with a new class of eager learners.

Nationwide, teachers are in demand. A national shortage of teachers means that schools will be searching to fill teaching positions at least through the next five to ten years. Consider becoming a teacher to impact the next generation!

MPS is grateful to our teachers for their dedication, caring, and genuine concern for their students that helps lead to academic success. We encourage the entire Milwaukee community to thank our teachers!
