Teaching at DSISD

Teachers design curriculum and develop learning experiences at DSISD based upon the Four Qualities of an Innovator:

  1. Personal Academic Excellence
  2. Life­long Learning & Citizenship
  3. Innovative Thinking & Action
  4. Transformative Leadership


The Positions

The growth of our student body coincides with the growth of our staff, and staff members have a unique opportunity to help create their dream learning environment and classroom.  Being a part of the DSISD instructional team is very different from your typical teaching position, as being a learning facilitator at DSISD draws upon a different set of teacher competencies than those required in more traditional educational environments. A few of the essential Innovator Creator competencies are listed below:

Staff Competencies

Mindsets: Growth, Personalization, Agency, Equity

Qualities: Collaboration, Flexibility, Innovation, Transparency

Technical Skills: Classroom Management, Technology, Data, Responsiveness, Connections

Adaptive Skills: Reflection, Inspiration, Facilitation
