Mrs. Latonya E. Knight

I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana.  My family and I relocated to Texas twelve years ago.  Prior to starting my teaching career, I worked at the YMCA, Exxon Mobile Company, Total Community Action Inc., taught a General Education Development (GED) course, and was a payroll/accounting clerk for seven years.  I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education, May 2002.  This is my fourteenth year of teaching.

In August 2003, I began my teaching career as a 2nd grade teacher in New Orleans.  After relocating to Texas, I taught 4th grade here at High Pointe Elementary from March-May 2006. Thereafter, I taught 1st grade for eleven years here at High Pointe Elementary.  Now, I am currently teaching Kindergarten here at High Pointe.  I have served as the grade level chair/team leader for six years, assisted new staff members with making a smooth transition, and served on various campus and district committees:  curriculum planning and writing, assessment planning and writing, discipline, attendance, Campus Advisory Team (CAT), parent involvement, and student placement.

I have been married for seventeen years.  My husband and I are the proud parents of an amazing son who is twelve years old.

Helping students reach their fullest potential is my passion.  I love teaching and my students love learning.  I have helped all of my students as well as students throughout our campus to grow and excel in my class, at High Pointe, throughout the district, and in college.  I am committed and dedicated to teaching, learning, and developing a successful partnership with teachers, staff, parents, and the community.  With our partnership, we will have a successful school year!
