Meet Schuyler Fishman

Teacher Ambassador

Quote Bubble Icon

I appreciate being in a community of educators who are striving to be the best at what they do within a values driven organization. Most importantly I love my students and the community of southwest Denver and to see my students matriculate in 4 year colleges and universities, a majority of whom will be the first in their families to attend.

    Why I Teach

    I enjoy teaching at DSST because I am fully committed to our mission to end educational inequity and I believe our school is set up to work towards that goal with urgency. I feel supported and challenged to deliver excellence to my students and I feel my students respond to that challenge with their best work.
