Home is where you are always welcome and where you grow, learn and discover. For generations of students, staff and alumni, Dallas ISD has been and still is a place they call home. As part of a new multiplatform campaign, This Is Home, Dallas ISD is looking to share the district’s stories, diversity and wide academic offerings with a wider audience.

Dallas ISD is home to neighborhood schools as well as innovation, dual language, career institutes, over 100 choice schools/specialty programs, early childhood education, fine arts, athletic programs, extracurricular activities, special education, diversity, alumni and much more.

In District 1, we are home to the new Prestonwood Montessori dual language elementary school at the E.D. Walker campus; the home of the current winner of the MLK oratory contest, Dominic Paterno; the home of strong performances from our high school athletic teams at Thomas Jefferson and W.T. White; the language programs offered at Withers, DeGolyer, Nathan Adams, Junkins, Bush, Kramer, Walnut Hill, and more.

We want to hear from you. Tell us your Dallas ISD “This Is Home story” by sharing it on social media using the hashtags #DallasISDIsHome and #DallasISDTuHogar or by sending an email to: thisishome@dallasisd.org.

Dallas ISD seeks to increase presence of Latino male educators

As part of an initiative aimed at recruiting teachers who represent the students they serve, Dallas ISD is launching a campaign to hire 10 Latino male professionals next fall and put them on the path toward becoming licensed teachers who will lead classrooms. In a school district with a population of over 70% Hispanic students, having teachers that reflect the district’s diversity can have a great impact on our students’ future success. This initiative follows in the footsteps of a similar program launched last year to hire 12 Black male teachers to serve at high-priority campuses.

Interested applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in any field and a GPA of 2.5 or above to be considered. But most importantly, we are looking for individuals showing a passion to help students succeed. Latino men interested in potentially applying to the program are encouraged to email their resume to futureteacher@dallasisd.org.

We have a Teacher of the Year nominee in District 1

Finally, I would like to congratulate one of our teachers in District 1, Jose Armendariz from Pershing Elementary School, for being a finalist for Teacher of the Year in the elementary school category. Congratulations!
