Parent

New Orleans, Louisiana

Latoya Douglas was born and raised in New Orleans and is a mother to three wonderful and bright children. She is highly involved in her children’s school—Andrew Wilson Charter School. In partnership with other parents at Wilson, Latoya led efforts to develop Wilson’s Parent-Teacher Association and to start a girls mentoring program for fourth-eighth-grade students called Young Ladies Who Rock.

Latoya strongly believes that all scholars whether they be in traditional, charter, or private schools should be exposed to the same educational goals, expectations and motivations to succeed. Her dedication to the students of New Orleans led Latoya to start the non-profit organization, The Parent Advocators, to ensure that parent voice was at the forefront in demanding a high-quality education for all New Orleans students.
