DMLK is a space of learning, family and progress. I love this building not only because it is in my neighborhood but because of all the people who work hard daily. DMLK is my home I am alumni and have decided to come back and teach here because I have not found another school that values relationships as much as DMLK. DMLK is my home and I hope that as I teach here, I continue to make other staff and students feel at home too.
