Colorado Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-10, 2024, and it is a perfect time to show teachers how much their dedication, creativity, kindness and hard work is appreciated. One great way to recognize your favorite educator is to nominate them to be the 2025 Colorado Teacher of the Year.

“Great educators are the heart of successful schools, and Teacher Appreciation Week is a time to celebrate and thank them for all they do,” said Education Commissioner Susana Córdova. “One way to recognize the special teachers you know is to nominate them for Colorado’s 2025 Teacher of Year and the opportunity to serve as the voice for all of Colorado’s dedicated educators."

Each year, the Colorado Teacher of the Year program honors an exceptionally dedicated, knowledgeable, and skilled K-12 classroom teacher to represent the entire profession in the state. The selected teacher will automatically become Colorado's nominee for the National Teacher of the Year competition.

Click here to nominate your favorite teacher today. Once nominated, teachers will be notified and encouraged to complete the 2025 Colorado Teacher of the Year application, which is due on June 19, 2024.

Denver7 is proud to partner with the Colorado Department of Education on the Colorado Teacher of the Year program.

As part of Teacher Appreciation Week, the 2024 Colorado Teacher of the Year Jessica May will throw the first pitch at the Colorado Rockies game on Saturday, May 11.

To celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, the Rockies are offering discounted tickets from May 7-12 as they play the San Francisco Giants and the Texas Rangers. Click here for more information on how to get your discounted tickets.
