Military veterans are an integral part of the district staff. They serve in virtually every capacity, from the maintenance teams and financial management staff to school administrators and teachers. Applying skills and discipline learned as service men and women, veterans make a positive difference in district operations. On this Veterans Day, be sure to show your appreciation to a veteran for their service to the country and Dallas ISD.
Commending the district’s veterans, Superintendent Michael Hinojosa said Dallas ISD is fortunate to count hundreds of military veterans at all levels of district staff. “These national heroes and heroines bring to their work with students the same strong ethic of public service demonstrated as members of the military.”
The U.S. Veterans Affairs Department echoes that view, pointing out that veterans bring to the workplace a wealth of important qualities like working well in a team, adaptability, creative problem-solving, a sense of duty, organization, discipline, self-confidence based on experience, and the ability to follow through on assignments even under difficult or stressful circumstances.
Dallas ISD appreciates the military veterans in our midst for their service to the country and the district.
