Denver Public Schools celebrates National Teacher Appreciation Week every year during the first full week of May. In 2018, we said ‘thank you’ to our educators with a lineup of celebrations and special features designed to show them just how much we value all they do.

Check back May 7 to see all that’s to come, including Teaching with Tom, spotlight videos, student voices and discounts and giveaways.

Our teachers are at the forefront of our kids’ education and are the greatest resources in helping us reach our vision, Every Child Succeeds – so please join DPS in honoring our educators for the amazing work they do every day!
