Teacher of the Month: La’Tosha Williams

Teacher of the month Oct21

For over a decade, La’Tosha Williams has taught at Montgomery Christian School. The beginning of this year marked her 12th year of service. With her energy still as vibrant as in her first year of teaching, she chose Montgomery Christian School because, as she shares,

“It’s the place where God purposely placed me.”

The environment, caring support, and mission all aligned with her values and expectations.

Many times educators seek the grade that their passionate about teaching, but Mrs. Williams shared that she didn’t choose the third grade… it chose her.

A former principal observed her skillful teaching techniques and deemed she would be an ideal third grade teacher. Williams shares, “I am thankful to Dr. Leon Frazier for sparking a fire under me by encouraging me to pursue higher education. I appreciate Pastor Joseph Pace and Antioch COGIC for praying me through and allowing me to teach, head the youth department, and grow at my local church. Lastly, my four children were my first set of students as we would study all summer long, learning together the importance of math, reading, and the arts.”

With a deep drive in her heart, molding the minds of future leaders is her purpose in teaching. She goes on to say,

“I want my students to shine Christ. I remind them daily that they are royalty because God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit created them, died for them, and lives within them if they choose to live their lives for Him.”

Continuing to perfect her skills for the love of teaching, La’Tosha has a goal to be a lifelong learner. Not only does she attest to being a teacher—but a student, too. She also desires for every child in her classroom to have a love for learning.

When approaching retirement age, most professionals dream about what their life will look like in the future. La’Tosha believes that teaching is preparing her for the work she will begin to do beyond the classroom walls. Her goal is to continue impacting youth through community education which creates change. Due to her love and compassion for children, she would like to open up a learning center in the future.

Congratulations, Mrs. Williams! We honor you as River Region Parents Teacher of the Month.
