About 1,200 DPS educators were celebrated for their outstanding performance in the classroom and with our kids during our annual Excellence in Teaching Tuesday night.


The annual celebration recognizes teachers and specialized service providers, such as school counselors and nurses, who received the top rating of Distinguished for growth and performance in the 2018-19 school year. All of our Distinguished educators and a guest were invited to be recognized, thanked and celebrated for their excellence in serving kids. The event was held at the Punch Bowl Social and made possible through the generosity of sponsors.


As we continue to focus on increasing student achievement, we know having a great teacher in the classroom is critical to reaching our goals and helping Every Child Succeed. And to help our educators grow professionally, we know that recognizing and honoring their efforts go hand-in-hand with coaching and supports.


Congratulations to all of our Distinguished teachers and specialized service providers!
