Brewers visit Milwaukee school to honor teacher, surprise students

Members of the Milwaukee Brewers visited a south side Milwaukee school on Wednesday, May 29, for a special surprise.

"They contacted our school, they were interested in bringing a couple players and wanted to recognize one of our teachers," said principal Santiago Navarro.

The students were hyped with cheers and screams for Brewers players Jackson Chourio, Andrew Monasterio and assistant coach Daniel de Mondesert.

"I started screaming, my friends were excited, and I was so shocked," said student Fabiola Lopez. "I didn't know that was going to happen."

But this isn't just any visit. It's part of the Brewers’ Grand Slam Teacher of the Month, which recognizes Wisconsin educators.

And on Wednesday, a beloved eighth grade teacher, Ms. Delaney, was honored.

"I just genuinely do love her with all my heart," Lopez said. "Everyone talks about her in a high way, in a high manner, so, it's just amazing."

In a school where the majority of students are of Latinx background, the Brewers players made sure to share some words of encouragement.
