Ms. Latoya Johnston
Hello and Welcome Back Rough Rider Family!
My name is Latoya Johnston and I am the counselor for our scholars who's last name ends in the letters A-K. I have the esteemed honor to continue my journey as a school counselor helping all students with issues that may be affecting their academics, career, and personal/social interractions. I have been with SLPS for 5 years now and have worn many hats in the district.
My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Political Science with an emphasis in Pre-Law from the outstanding illustrious HARRIS STOWE STATE UNIVERSITY (Go Hornets!). I am currently pursuing a Master of Arts in school counseling and clinical mental health counseling.
On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my 4 amazing kids, singing, traveling, and dancing like no one is watching. My personal philosophy on life can be summerized by my favorite quote:
“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences.” - Eleanor Roosevelt
I am so excited and honored to serve here at Roosevelt High school! Let's get to work!
