Meet the principal of Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School.
The 2021-22 school year begins my 21st year in education. As an educator, I am driven by the individual success and growth of every student. I have devoted my career to educating, inspiring, and advocating for students, both as a classroom teacher and as an administrator. I am excited to bring my passion, enthusiasm and experience to cultivate our unique school environment. Above all, I am excited to observe, listen, learn, and understand what makes MLK, Jr. Elementary thrive.
I look forward to continuing our partnership with you to ensure all children are celebrated and supported. Together we will ensure that we maintain our traditions and core values that makes Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary such a special place. Our school core values are intelligence, character, and perseverance. These core values guide everything we do. We believe every student is capable of rising above circumstances in order to reach the highest level of their potential. This is the MLK Way!”
The heart of my practice is building strong relationships with the staff, students, and families I serve. I look forward to listening to your ideas and vision for our school and collaborating with each of you to support our sense of community here at Martin Luther King, Jr, Elementary. As your principal, I will strive to ensure that all families feel welcome and connected to our school family
I know many of our students and families are eagerly anticipating the full reopening of our campus.
With Falcon Pride,
Dr. LaTanya Williams-Collins
