Posted at 8:56 PM, Jan 17, 2020

MILWAUKEE — There is no doubt about it, the place with the most Packers pride in Wisconsin is Ms. Jackson's 4th grade classroom.

"I've been a Packers fan for over 30 years, and all of the students in Milwaukee that have had me know I am a big Packers fan," Ms. Jackson, a 4th grade teacher at Hawthorne Elementary in Milwaukee, said.

From the books on her shelves to the projections on her ceiling, every inch of her classroom is filled with Packers gear.

"I have been to Lambeau lots of times. Title Town that little town, and I love it," she said.

That kind of spirit has rubbed off on her students. One 4th grader said she just became a Packers fan in the last year because of Ms. Jackson. Maybe not so coincidentally, her favorite player, Davante Adams, is also a few of her student's favorite player.

This weekend homework is easy, watch the Packers game. A few score predictions for the NFC Championship provided by her and a few students: 27-21, 52-31, and 35-28 Packers. Of course, all in favor the of the Packers.
