We can’t believe it either, but Chicago’s first day of school is just around the corner. We’re celebrating with a storytelling event and happy hour for Chicago teachers at Marz Brewing in Bridgeport during professional development week. 

Join Chalkbeat Chicago on Aug. 27 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for beer, food, and storytelling featuring some of the city’s most literary classroom leaders. We want to hear your stories, too, and give you a chance to learn more about our education news nonprofit before school’s hubbub starts in the fall. 

Sign up here. We have free food and beer, and space is limited. 

Have questions or want to learn more about Chalkbeat? Email Cassie Walker Burke, Chicago’s bureau chief, at cburke@chalkbeat.org

See you there!
