    Campus Teacher of the Year Award

    Every year, Dallas ISD celebrates teaching excellence by recognizing outstanding educators who are making a difference in the lives of students every day. All Dallas ISD schools have the opportunity to award one teacher from their campus as the Campus Teacher of the Year. These valuable teachers are dedicated to their students, school, and Dallas ISD. Campus Teachers of the Year will be honored on Thursday, March 30, 2023.

    Employee Engagement Opportunities

    In the Fall of 2022, the Onboarding and Retention Team hosted a Mentor/Mixer Mixer at Dave and Buster's where new teachers were able to network with content departments, gain valuable educational resources, and unwind with their mentor teacher.

    Dallas ISD is striving to create more networking and professional development opportunities for teachers new to the district. Please check back for more employee engagement events in the spring.
