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.
