Here at DPS we have amazing students who have incredible stories of overcoming setbacks, persevering through difficulties, setting big goals and achieving success. So many of these stories point back to the dedication and difference a teacher has made in their lives. In the spirit of celebrating teachers, we asked students throughout DPS to share about a teacher who has helped them discover who they are and shaped their futures.
“They’re the ones who kind of shape who you are,” said Morey Middle School sixth grader, Addi Kirkland. “They’re really those fundamental people that help shape you into loving yourself and caring about others.”
Watch this video to hear from more DPS students on how their teachers are making a difference in their lives.
