Honoring our Teachers and Principals


At DCPS, we know that excellent teachers and principals are the key to ensuring a superior education for the children of the District of Columbia. That’s why we are committed to honoring our outstanding educators and to recognizing the extraordinary efforts they make every day on behalf of their students.

Below you’ll find descriptions of a few of the honors awarded to our teachers and principals. Many of these awards are presented at annual Standing Ovation for DC Teachers hosted by the DC Public Education Fund.
