My name is Tony Ayala. I go by Mr. Tony. I am the new Discipline Specialist for Middle School. My degree and background is in Mental Health. Before DCI I worked as a Behavioral Support Specialist with children for over 17 years. A few things about me....hmm. I am a DC native. I am athletic and a runner. I pretty much love the local teams (Nationals, United, Mystics, and even the Redskins still). Huge Alabama fan (Roll Tide). I can be fun, witty, creative, and goofy. Quiet at other times. I look forward to getting to know the DCI staff, students, and their families!
