MEET THE TEACHER:
Hello, my name is LaToya J. Abram-Payton! I am so excited to be your Stem Lab Facilitator for the 2021/2022 school year! We are going to have so much fun!!
Just to give you a little bit of history about me: My birthday: June 12th. I love the color Yellow! My favorite food: Crab Legs! Favorite snack: Queso dip and fresh deli tortilla chips! A fun fact about me: I love to paint, listen to motivational podcasts/e-books, and spending time with family and friends! My family and I reside in Rocky Mount, NC. I have three wonderful children (20, 18, & 11) and a wonderful husband of 13 years!
MY EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:
I started my educational career at Nash Community College and received a dual degree-Associates in Arts/Education. I then went to Barton College, Wilson, NC. Where I received my Bachelors in Social Work. I didn't stop there! I proceeded to attend Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA. I'm happy to say, "I have received my Masters in Marriage and family counseling". I kept going! I decided I wanted to be a kindergarten teacher, so, I went back to my alma mater: Barton College. I am licensed in Birth -Kindergarten! I taught kindergarten for three years (until Covid happened). I am now BACK at Liberty pursuing my Doctorate in Curriculum and Instructions (I have about 16/18 credits before starting on my dissertation-wish me luck!). I am truly looking forward to a wonderful year as your Stem Lab Facilitator!! Say Often: Whatever I think I am....I always so much more!!!
