Cohn Dereka Duncan interview

Dereka Duncan talks with the Milken Family Foundation after her surprise Milken Educator Award notification. "I teach because I want to make a difference in my community," she says — particularly meaningful for Dereka, who teaches in the same classroom in which she was once a student. "The best is yet to come for us. If education makes a difference here, all other things can change too."
