Superintendent of ISD
An alumnus of Indiana School for the Deaf in Indianapolis, David Geeslin received his Master’s degree in Education from Boston University in 1991. He has worked at ISD since 1991—as elementary-school principal, licensed teacher, and educational consultant for Indiana’s Outreach Services for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children. He co-authored Indiana’s legislative bill recognizing ASL as a distinct language fulfilling foreign-language requirements. When he received his Ed.D. in Educational Leadership from Indiana University in May 2006, he made history as the first deaf person to earn a doctorate from IU—or any college in the state. He had high praise for the faculty and support services. Soon afterwards, he was appointed superintendent of ISD, where his vision, practicality, and commitment to change are welcomed.
