Passion should never be taken lightly, and I am lucky that you helped me find it.
Teachers come to Denver Academy because they are creative, energetic and believe in the potential of every child. They stay because they value the supportive team environment and know they are making a real impact in the lives of their students. Many are “teachers’ teachers.” Regarded as best-in-class by their peers, they are frequently asked to present at conferences, seminars, and workshops. But just as important as their training and credentials, is the creativity they bring to their classrooms. At Denver Academy, teachers are empowered with the freedom and flexibility to deliver curriculum in ways that effectively engage, challenge, and inspire each student to reach his or her full potential.
