Dean of Culture


My name is La’Mar Tyler and I and honored to be the Dean of Culture at Cooke Stem Academy. This is my 11th year in education and my 3rd year with Detroit Public Schools Community District. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Family and Consumer Science from Madonna University. I also hold an Associates of Arts degree from Schoolcraft College in Liberal Arts. I have worked in many capacities throughout my education career. I have been an Instructional Coach, Academic Interventionist, Assessment Coordinator, and Paraprofessional for ESE students to name a few. I also have 15 years of basketball coaching experience. I am entering my 6th year as a high school varsity basketball assistant coach.

My experience in education and coaching has aligned me with the vision and mission of DPSCD, to provide every student with a beneficial and rightful educational experience, preparing students to be career and college ready. In addition, to champion a whole child approach that combines superior academics with socio-emotional, extracurricular, and health services tailored to each individual student's needs. I look forward to serving and building upon the great culture here at Cooke S.T.E.M. Academy.
