Blugold Briefing

teacher of the year, Chris Gleason Inspiring young musicians

While Chris Gleason is always glad to hear his middle school band students hit the right musical notes, it’s their curiosity, creativity and joy of learning that make his heart soar as he heads to work each day. The UW-Eau Claire graduate’s passion for teaching, as well as his talent for nurturing and inspiring his students in ways that help them use their gifts to excel in band and in life, has earned him the 2016 Wisconsin Teacher of the Year honor. As the state’s top teacher, he now is in the running for the National Teacher of the Year honors.
