La'Tonia Smith

Math Teacher/Mentor

La'Tonia has a BS in Mathematics from Howard Payne University. She taught College Algebra at the University of North Texas as a teaching fellow, and high school math in Fort Worth ISD. Over the last 19 years, she has taught and tutored in various settings: educational coops, businesses, and online. La'Tonia’s five children have been in various educational settings, public, private, online, and home. Her children range from a married medical student to a 13-year-old son that was failure to thrive for six years with educational challenges.

La'Tonia helps with special buddies at her church. Raised in Wyoming, she loves the outdoors, hiking, and camping with her youngest son and his awesome dog. Backpacking is her new gig, as well as all-terrain obstacle courses. Sports is a necessity in life – especially basketball.

La'Tonia thrives on finding joy in the little things in life and sharing that joy with others. Her greatest passion is to be a lifelong learner and infecting those around her with that passion.
