Family Life at TWKDMS
TWKDMS is a "family" school. Pictured here are three parents (all TWKDMS employees) with their kid (either a TWKDMS employee or a regular substitute). Not pictured, we have two other staff who are married, another staff with a spouse that subs, another parent teacher/child sub combo, and another parent/child employee combo. Some days Mr. Long feels like the only employee without a relative!
