What a Typical Teacher's Day Actually Looks Like 06/07/2024

What does a typical day look like for you? For Patrick, a member of the Denver Classroom Teachers Association - DCTA, a typical day involves early mornings, a full schedule of classes, afternoon planning, and their workload extending well into the night and weekends.

What a Typical Teacher's Day Actually Looks Like The daily duties of the job extend way beyond teaching students.


When public education succeeds, students succeed. That's why we're wearing red on Wednesdays—to remind everyone that investing in our schools is an investment in our future. Let's give every student the chance to thrive.


Recent NEA research reveals that 61 percent of elementary school teachers reported not having enough time for a bathroom break during their workday.

Situations like these, which often lead to "teacher bladder," have lifelong consequences. Learn how teachers are using their union power to secure these fundamental rights:


Teachers and support staff want to provide every student with an accurate and quality education, while some politicians want to exclude certain kids, denying their schools funding and writing people who look like them out of our history books. This , join us in the movement to make schools places where children can learn and thrive without fear, intimidation, or disrespect.


🌈 Happy Pride Month! 🌈 We believe in creating inclusive, supportive, and welcoming environments for all students and educators. As we kick off Pride Month, we celebrate the diversity and strength of our LGBTQ+ community and reaffirm our commitment to fostering equity and respect in every classroom and school across Colorado.
