About Colorado Teacher Appreciation Week
Colorado teachers change lives! Colorado Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8-12, 2023. CDE is grateful for all the inspiring teachers who work every day to change the lives of Colorado students.
During this week, we celebrate Colorado teachers and all they do for our communities and schools.
For Teacher Appreciation Week 2023, CDE has partnered with The Colorado Rockies and TEACH Colorado to invite all teachers, support staff, administrators and volunteers to a special night at the ballpark Friday, May 12, through Wednesday May 17. Discounted tickets are available through the Rockies Teacher Appreciation Homestand webpage. For every ticket purchased through the homestand, $2 will be donated to TEACH Colorado.
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. For more information, including past winners, visit the Colorado Teacher of the Year program webpage.
