The LI Law Podcast

Ep 52: La Toya Caton discusses remote learning, education, and Covid-19.

June 16, 2020

Welcome to the LI Law Podcast. 

The premise of this podcast is to feature issues, developments, and topics affecting the law and how it relates to the 8 million of us who live or work on Long Island, New York, which includes Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, and Kings Counties. 

During the Covid-19 health crisis, episodes will be published as soon as they are recorded to keep listeners updated on the most up-to-date legal developments on Long Island. 

Our guest on this 52nd episode is La Toya Caton, who tutors children and young adults in grades K-12 and beyond.  La Toya runs after-school and summer programs and also assists high school students with their college applications. 

Growing up, La Toya did not think she would become a teacher. After graduating from college, she began working at a consulting firm on Wall Street. While working there, she started volunteering at an after school program and enjoyed teaching and working with children.  This led to her registering for education courses and graduating with a Masters in Elementary Education with Gifted Extension. La Toya is certified as a NYS teacher and licensed to teach all academic subjects to students in grades 1-6 and math to students in grades  7-12.

La Toya taught in an NYC public school for three years and became tenured. During that time, she saw many students with lagging skills which prevented them from understanding material presented. She then decided to create an after school program dedicated to helping students reach their academic potential and has done that ever since.
