Clinical Teaching in Dallas ISD

  • Dallas ISD is very excited to have clinical teachers in our schools. We see our clinical teachers as part of the team, and look forward to pairing them with our best teachers. Our district also provides a personalized experience for clinical teachers. In the fall and spring semesters, we host elementary school tours, secondary school tours, career workshops and job fairs. At the end of the placement, clinical teachers work with our teacher recruitment team to find open teaching positions. CLICK HERE to see what a clinical teacher's day looks like in Dallas ISD.
