Woods, LaTanya

I was born and raised in Dallas, Tx. I graduated from Texas A&M University- Commerce with a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Elementary Education.

I’m married with one son and one daughter.

I have been teaching for 14 years in the Grand Prairie School District.

I enjoy teaching young gifted minds and exploring learning through a variety of interactive ways.

    * 4 hours a week of interdisciplinary thematic units

    * Accelerated Math in all grade levels: first – fourth grades

    * Independent research opportunities allow students to investigate specific topics of interest and to develop sophisticated products
