What is the Brewers Grand Slam Teacher of the Month Award?
The Brewers Grand Slam Teacher of the Month Award program is in honor of educators from all grade levels and disciplines who are improving student achievement, using innovative strategies in the classroom, and making a difference in the lives of their students. Teachers and other educators change the lives of millions of children and adults every day, and their work and impact extend far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. They play a pivotal role in our lives and those of our children, inspiring a lifelong love of learning and discovery and making a difference in their well-being and long-term success. To show thanks and gratitude for these important contributions to our community, each month from January 2023 through December 2023, the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club, Limited Partnership (the “Brewers”) will recognize one educator in the community who has made a difference in the lives of Wisconsin students.
