Media and Branding

Our branding is inspired by the symbolic north star. Like guiding stars in the night sky, great teachers helps students navigate their own paths.

In The News

“My classes during virtual school were 40 minutes, and we would spend 15 a day talking about mental health. That could be a superpower: a laser focus on the importance…”

“DPS Teacher Receives Special Honor: Justin Barney Recognized for Focus on Mental Health”

“This pandemic has been very hard...but David being in Ms. Balsam's class is one of the highlights of the year.”

“Her dedication and tenure have helped many of her students...understand the world around them, and she constantly teaches the importance of kindness for all.”

“Since the age of 23, I've been on a constant journey to improve as a teacher – and after 20 years, I'm still learning.”

“Receiving a thank you from a student is all the recognition we need to feel appreciated, and to feel like we’re doing our job.”

“If we can consciously and systematically recognize and reward great teachers, we can help ensure that great teachers stay in the classroom longer and that a new generation of talent…”

“He won’t take ‘no’ as an answer; if you’re not doing his work, he’ll push you and push you until you do.”

“Mendoza credits his success to the teachers who inspired him throughout his life. He wants to do the same for his own students at Gadsden High, many of whom face…”

“If I hadn't gone to Eagle Rock and met Jon, I probably would have dropped out of high school. I would be a completely different person.”

“Kristen McClintock is being celebrated this month by Honored for stepping up when Hurricane Harvey hit and doing a job many people would have never thought of doing.”

“In August, Aldridge was recognized by Honored, a national nonprofit that aims to recognize teachers across the country in a variety of school environments.”

“Aldridge was selected [as an Honoree], with Atlantic contributing editor Andrew Exum, who is also a veteran, penning her profile.”

“The event also recognized Karen Sonneborn and Katherine Boone's new organization, Honored, which identifies and rewards outstanding K-12 teachers for their commitment to students.”

“Blanco is credited with leading a digital revolution at the Bronx school. He proposed a new position for himself - technology coordinator - to educate students on essential digital skills…”

“The kids know he believes in them, that’s the thing. It’s asset-based: You guys have something to offer the world.”

“Mr. Blanco really taught me what being a leader meant. He would ask, ‘What do you think is the next best step?’ instead of giving us all the answers.”

“That type of investment in saying ‘thanks to educators’ is a significant financial gift that really makes a difference in our lives.”
