"During my time as an instructor at DMA, I was blown away but the creativity, innovation, and cleverness of my students, not to mention hilarity. It's an amazing experience working with students who are so eager to learn about challenging concepts, but also inspiring to see what they create. It reminds you why you work in this field in the first place."
