Meet City Schools

Dyan Sellers, Manager of Recruitment and Partnerships

 
Dyan Sellers
A typical day in my job...

depends on the time of year. During recruitment season (January – July), I am screening candidates’ applications on a daily basis for school-based positions. I could also be attending a recruitment event, conducting a training or information session to support recruitment, answering candidates’ questions, or taking part in some activity to keep candidates engaged through the hiring process.  During the rest of the year, I am planning recruitment strategy, analyzing data to inform our future recruitment efforts, and building and fostering relationships with institutions of higher learning and other organizations that will help us reach more prospective candidates. 

I graduated from… 

the University of Michigan with a bachelor's in zoology in 2000 and Catholic University of America with a master's in HR Management in 2017.

I have been with City Schools since… 

August 2016. 

People would be surprised to learn that...

I used to be really involved in community theater when I was a child and once played Dorothy in a production of The Whiz!

The most rewarding thing about my job is…

 that I have the opportunity to recruit staff members to work for City Schools who directly impact the educational experience of students on a daily basis.

The most important thing I’ve learned from a student is…

one size does not fit all; nothing works for everyone. Whether it’s behavior plans, lesson delivery, classroom management, assessments, extracurricular activities, or even scheduling, it’s important to consider individual students’ strengths, goals, and motivations. 

My favorite movie is...

The Greatest Showman. I love musicals and the music in that movie is amazing!

What I like most about Baltimore is...

there is something here for everyone, no matter what your interests and passions are.
