As Delaware celebrates National Teacher Appreciation Week, the Delaware Department of Education – in partnership with the Delaware State Education Association, Delaware Parent Teacher Association and Rodel Foundation of Delaware – encourages the public to thank our state’s great educators for their dedication and hard work to help our students succeed every week of the year.
“This is an opportunity for parents, students and community members throughout the state to say ‘thank you’ for what our teachers do day in and day out, too often unnoticed and unheralded,” Secretary of Education Mark Murphy said.
The partners are encouraging Delawareans to thank the educators making a difference in their lives, families and communities this week and to submit photographs and words of thanks so they can be shared more broadly by emailing them to DelExcels@doe.k12.de.us.
Entries will be posted on the DelExcels website throughout the week here.
Created through a public-private partnership of DDOE, DSEA, DPTA and Rodel, www.DelExcels.org aims to better inform Delawareans about the state’s new standards and assessments. The site features answers to common questions, video, presentations and links to a variety of resources, including practice tests for the new Smarter assessment, comparison documents looking at old versus new assessment questions and a Principal Toolkit with resources to help a school host a parent night to explain the standards and assessments.
