Largo High School
Latonya has taught IB and AP art for 7 years and grew her AP program from 3 to 28+ and IB program from 0 to 23. She is also an AP reader. It is a challenge to teach two highly academic yet philosophically different programs at the same time and still maintain high levels of success. That success is from having a strong community.
