I am married and the mother of five adult children. I am currently raising my nephew. I am also the grandmother of seven. My family is the most important thing to me. I am a proud supporter of child advocacy. My entire life involves some type of association with children and families. I am a graduate of John F. Kennedy High School and I received an Associate Degree in Early Chilhood Education from Coahoma Community College. I also completed 14 hours of credits in Elementary Education at Mississippi Valley State. During my college years, I was a volunteer in AmeriCorps through Delta State University. I was chosen as an America Reads tutor. I was chosen to complete my duties as a tutor at Ruleville Central Elementary which included working with students in small settings and teaching thestudents how to enhance their reading and writing skills by practicing reading and writing daily. After completing the AmeriCorps program, I became a substitute teacher in the Mound Bayou Public School District. I am currently employed as a Substitute Teacher at North Bolivar Consolidated School District and I am currently a new worker at C2K Ministry After School Program. I am currently a resident of Mound Bayou, Mississippi where I grew up and raised my family. The best part of my life is seeing my children and grandchildren grow up to be responsible, intelligent adults and having my family support me as I continue to give support to other children and families in our community.
My name is Latonya Fields. I reside in Mound Bayou, Mississippi. I have 2 children whom are my pride and joy. I enjoy working with kids and teaching them numerous, better, and easier ways to solve a problem. Years ago, I substituted at I.T.M elementary school, volunteered at Bolivar County Headstart center and I also volunteered at C2K Ministries on last year which is located in Mound Bayou MS. I always tell the children who I come in contact with…”If you try your best, then one great day you’ll reach success.”
