In addition to helping new Milwaukee residents, Find My Spot has partnered with the Greater Milwaukee Committee and its services will be provided to new educators in the Milwaukee area through the GMC’s Teachtown MKE initiative.
Find My Spot has been able to find a new home for about 130 new teachers since Teachtown went live on June 20, and hopes to help at least 200.
The GMC formed Teachtown MKE in January after Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Gregory Thornton came to the committee with hopes to create an initiative to welcome new educators to Milwaukee replacing over 700 retiring teachers.
The GMC also partnered with MPS, Teach for America, City Year and Schools That Can for the “New Teachers Welcome Kit.” The kit includes a one-year pass to the Milwaukee Art Museum, tickets to Milwaukee Brewers games and a one-week trial membership from the YMCA.
