FOUNDER.

Latoya D. Walden

Ms. Walden is passionate about student achievement both in and outside of the classroom. In the classroom, her main objectives are to promote equity in learning (EVERYONE can learn), foster a love for learning, and help scholars realize their potential to prosper using their innate gifts and talents. Whenever there is a need, Ms. Walden seeks to fill it- not only with commitment, but with patient love.

Currently Ms. Walden is a public school teacher in Atlanta, Georgia teaching middle grades English Language Arts and Social Studies. During her tenure, she has seen the enormous need for outstanding, culturally competent teachers. It is evident that change must happen in education. This understanding led her to create individualized curriculums and pushed Ms. Walden to create her own educational company, The Teacher’s Lounge Atlanta, to leverage equity in education for BIPOC youth.

ABOUT US

The Teacher’s Lounge Atlanta seeks to transform traditional education by providing what scholars and teachers need to thrive. The Teacher's Lounge Atlanta actively engages with students and promotes the use of technology to nurture learning and encourages scholars to use critical thinking skills to solve real-world problems. This approach leads scholars to become global learners while also allowing teachers to connect with scholars in a more authentic way.

Private Tutoring 

One on one tutoring sessions are available. Sessions are individualized and designed to meet the specific needs of each scholar. Before sessions begin with the Teacher's Lounge Atlanta, we conduct theory based assessments with each scholar to collect data and determine the scholar's academic and social needs. Academic plans are created and tailored to meet the scholars needs during each session.

Read Better.

Children's reading success is dependent upon their understanding of phonics. It is important to understand that letters and letter patterns represent sounds of spoken language. Phonics instruction teaches the relationship between letters of written language and the sounds of spoken language. This working knowledge is the foundation of all great readers.

Write More.

Many scholars struggle with translating their thoughts into meaningful words. The Writers' Focus course teaches scholars how to analyze writing prompts, articulate their thoughts, and find evidence to support their writing. Writing strategies are shared with scholars and practiced repeatedly to build writing focus and confidence.

Learn Black History.

This course aims to educate scholars about the concept of heroism and to teach the history of African American heroes of the 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Scholars will enhance their critical thinking, creativity, as well as increase their writing skills. Throughout this course scholars develop sound research skills while working collaboratively with others to create a virtual museum of African American heroes.
