DENVER (CBS4)– A new school was dedicated on Monday that honored a lifelong teacher in Denver.
Denver Public Schools celebrated the grand opening of the Sandra Todd-Williams Academy on Monday.
The early childhood education center is near 45th Avenue and Tower Road in Green Valley Ranch.
The center is named after Sandra Todd-Williams, a teacher who not only grew up going to Denver Public Schools but dedicated her life to serving students.
Todd-Williams taught for DPS for 35 years and retired last summer.
“This means the world to me. That I can have a legacy that lives on for all the children that I touched in the far northeast,” said Todd-Williams.
Classes begin at the school on June 9 for 3 and 4-year-old student.
