Whether it’s offering office hours after school, jumping on an impromptu Google Meet session or checking in on a student who needs a smile, DPS teachers are going above and beyond to make sure our students know they are there for them -- no matter what.
As part of our Teacher Appreciation Week celebration, we asked DPS students what they appreciated most about their teachers during remote learning. The answer we heard most? That teachers are always there for them -- whether for social and emotional support, homework help, or just a quick hello.
“Thank you for just being there,” said DC21 10th-grader Nicole Alloway, “and supporting students throughout this whole thing.”Watch our Teacher Appreciation video highlighting the ways our teachers are putting Students First in inspiring ways, especially during these challenging times.
