Mrs. Abram-Payton (STEM Lab Facilitator)


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! 


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!!!
