  • Our students need great teachers

    As a teacher in Dallas ISD, your impact goes far beyond the students sitting in the desks of your classroom. For many students, just having an adult who believes in them can be life-changing. When a teacher works with a student to help them realize their goals, you build the confidence needed for them to go out and achieve great things.

    In order for students to be engaged at all times in the classroom, we need teachers who are willing to go beyond the lesson plan and make learning an interactive, dynamic experience. By focusing on improving the quality of instruction, and committing to the development and continuous support of those leading our classrooms, our students reap the rewards by being better prepared to achieve success.

    Dallas ISD is committed to setting a new standard for education not only in North Texas but in the country. As part of our team, you will help shape the future of teaching and learning for generations to come. And the students you impact along the way? Well, their success is what this profession is all about.

VISA Program

  • The Dallas ISD H-1B visa program allows the District to recruit and retain international educators for critical shortage areas. Many Dallas ISD schools have benefitted from the cultural and linguistic experience that the H-1B teachers have provided and the Visa Department within the Human Capital Management Division will ensure that the program continues to function efficiently and effectively for all parties involved.

    As the regulations for H-1B visas continue to evolve, the Visa Department is working to maintain the program at a level which is feasible, compliant, and financially stable. Therefore, there will be a cap of H-1B visas instituted for the 2018-2019 school year. As of today, July 11, 2018, the cap has been reached, and no additional international candidates will be able to be hired for the 2018-2019 school year.

    The District will be opening their visa program again for the 2019-2020 School only for Elementary Bilingual Teachers.

  • TEI logo Teachers can earn more here

    In most districts, it would take an average of 20 years to reach an annual salary of $60,000. But in Dallas ISD, that same $60,000 annual salary is achievable in fewer than five years. For those teachers truly invested in becoming transformative, an annual salary of $90,000 is obtainable.

    Other districts talk about how valuable their teachers are. We show you.
