College of Education > About > Mission and History > Celebrating Teachers
The College of Education knows that the influence of a good teacher can transform the life of a student. In 2012, as part of the College of Education’s fiftieth anniversary celebration, Dean Zionts founded the Celebrating Teachers initiative to acknowledge and honor the K-12 teachers who have had a powerful impact in the lives of DePaul students. DePaul juniors and seniors from across the university are invited to share their stories about the educators near and far who have inspired them. Esteemed teachers are celebrated for their service in the spring.
