Why Join Denver Teach Today?

Denver Public Schools (DPS) is the fastest growing urban school district in the nation, hiring roughly 500 teachers annually.  We understand that teachers make the difference.  DPS is on the leading edge of education reform across the country with efforts such as the LEAP framework for effective teaching, implementation of Common Core state standards, and teacher leadership development.
