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.
Current DePaul students are encouraged to nominate a K-12 teacher that has had an impact on their educational journey.
Submissions must be received by March 31, 2020 to be considered for this year's award.
All students submitting nominations will be entered in a raffle to win a $25 Amazon gift card. Teachers selected to be honored will, along with the students who nominated them, be invited to accept their awards at the June 11, 2020 College of Education Honors Convocation.
If you know the teacher's current school, please enter that information below. If not, please enter the name and location of the school where you were taught by the nominee.
