National Blue Ribbon School

Assistant Principal- Lisa Dettelbach

Dear Martin Luther King Families,

It is an honor to introduce myself as the new Assistant Principal of Martin Luther King Elementary School. The beginning of the 2021-2022 school year will mark my fourteenth year in education as I arrive at MLK as a seasoned teacher and Assistant Principal. I have held positions at all three levels of education over the past thirteen years. I’ve taught and coached at the middle and high school level and served as an Assistant Principal at a neighboring elementary school.

The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time. We come back refreshed from the summer, excited to see friends, eager to meet our teachers, and ready to start fresh. Administration, staff and students alike have the chance to start new, set goals, and work to reach our full potential. It is my goal to provide a safe and nurturing educational environment that not only supports others in meeting their goals but also challenges them to reach further and become lifelong learners who will make a positive impact on the world around them. I hope to partner with you to ensure the success of your child and our school as a whole.

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, concerns, or suggestions that would contribute to the success of your child and our school. I am excited about the possibilities that this school year will bring and look forward to learning more the MLK community.  Let’s have a great year!

 Warm Regards,

Mrs. Dettelbach
