Ms. LaToya Evans

My name is LaToya Evans and I am incredibly excited to be your child’s Spanish teacher this year.  I am looking forward to working with students and families to ensure that we have an amazing school year!  I look forward to motivating and challenging your child to create the best version of themselves by effectively convincing them that they are able to learn a different language. The skills to do this are the same skills that they will need to succeed beyond the 7th and 8th grade. Although I love the Spanish language, my goal is to inspire them to reach higher in every aspect of their future.  Teaching them a world language is simply one way to accomplish that goal. I have a passion for shining a bright light on that place in a child that they did not know existed. Most students do not believe that they are capable of effectively learning another language. I am here to show them that they are fully capable of doing just that.

            I graduated from Michigan State University and earned my BA in Public Policy and Secondary Education while also being an MSU Cheerleader.  From there, I taught 9th and 12th grade in various disciplines of social studies.  Later, I stepped away from the workforce to stay home to raise my children for 14 years. I was happy to return to my passion over 3 years ago in various educational roles. Admittedly, my most favorite role was as an 8th grade Spanish teacher responsible for preparing students for language learning in high school. I am looking forward to continuing that success here at Huth Middle School.  Fun fact: I graduated from Huth Middle School and Matteson School District 162. It is my honor to return home to step in this position after the retirement of my very first Spanish teacher who inspired the love I have for this language today.

            As a mother, I respect and understand the importance of clear communication between home and school. Please know that I welcome an open line of communication. If there is something that is important for me to know about your child, please keep me informed as I will do the same for you and your family.   Email is best, but you can also call the school and leave a voicemail. Calls and emails will be returned as soon as possible.
