For most teachers, supporting their students doesn’t end with the last bell — and many DPS teachers invest in their kids’ lives outside of school hours, whether it’s through home visits, leading clubs, volunteering or coaching.

At Barnum Elementary, fourth-grade teacher Valeria Nevárez saw how soccer was benefiting her students, which inspired her mission to continue the school’s program throughout the year.

“I just want to be there for them in any way that I possibly can, whatever they need,” Valeria said.

We know teachers throughout DPS share the same passion as Valeria — supporting our kids inside and outside the classroom, helping them reach their potential.
