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.
Every year, DePaul graduating students are encouraged to nominate a K-12 teacher that has had an impact on their educational journey.
Submissions are closed for 2022. They will reopen in March for the Class of 2023.
Cancelled due to COVID-19
